    a significant part of the population shifted with them. What I find interesting about the extremism of the Republican party is they way they have managed to brand their ideas as being populist/mainstream. If anybody is to argue that the Republican shift is a betrayal what about those who voted for them especially the tea baggers. Either those voters are a) dumber than a box of rocks or b) basically on board with the shift. There is no "center" in the Republican Party now and while many people gleefully predict demise, it has not happened because a large chunk of the American population is reactionary and no amount of factual discussions can persuade them. Sadly people are down with this shit.
