    The GOP has since 2012, in realizing that it has too many racist good old boys... and being given a choice between trying to change that and sticking with them...

    Made its choice.

    You can't blame them.

    They're more or less hated by anyone who is not a misogynist and/or white-supremacy racist (usually and).

    That demographic is also the core of their base and where they get about a third of their funding (big business types like Koch being the bulk of it - people who would slaughter their own children if offered a dime) but nearly all of their votes.

    They're reviled by non-whites, generally disdained by women across all ethnic lines, and growing less and less popular with whites who are not in the 'good old boy' demographic.

    So when you've painted yourself into that sort of a place... you might as well put your chin up, raise your fists, and run that beast as far as you can take it.

    The roaches always win if you turn out the lights.
