    Whether or not that is true is the million dollar question. I suspect that it isn't exactly true, but that it also isn't far wrong either.

    I only prevaricate sometimes . . . .

    Ok, so I read the polls.

      But the overarching point remains: this kind of thing isn't new. It's happening now. Will it get worse in the meantime? Probably. Is it bad? Definitely. But this article won't be the spark of some sudden lurch back to the time of Moses because that has been the trend in the GOP for some time now. It doesn't matter what article or situation validates that regressive platform; it's already here.

      23, D, pragmatic progressive (-4.50, -5.18), CA-14. DKE folk culture curator.

        I have a similar attitude towards the people who believe that the Republican party only went extreme right in 2008, as if Newt Gingrich were really just Bob Michel.

        Ok, so I read the polls.
