      (a) the Republican base is much more passionate about its hate than moderates are about tolerance;

       (b) the economy still sucks, partly due to GOP obstructionism and partly due to Dem fecklessness and fealty to third-way nonsolutions;

       (c) Democratic messaging is all but nonexistent, and what's out there is all about identity politics and not about broad-based economic issues;

       (d) most voters aren't policy wonks, and aren't going to take the time to tease out the increasingly imperceptible differences between the parties on economic issues;

       (e) most liberals are exceedingly naive about how much non-activist Americans really care about issues like torture and surveillance.

      The gerrymandering doesn't help, but it's a symptom -- the Dems all but threw the 2010 midterms to put themselves in this position.
