    to a Southern Democrat.  But at least I know the rest of the country has sense.  And the South will get dragged along, kicking and screaming like always.

      before virtual reality, there was virtual representation. Your interests are represented by the majority if not your particular congressional delegation. The Republicans are truly becoming the rump party. Unfortunately for you and others similarly situated, it is a rump located primarily in the south.

      •  What's a rump party anyway? (0+ / 0-)

        the GOP remains a Southern regional rump party

        Ass party?  Butt party?  Rump party?  Am I translating something incorrectly?

        Regional I understand... rump, not so clear, although I've heard if for years.

          a rump party is one which remains after a major faction splits off to form a new party. In the case of the current Republicans it is not so much a split and formation of a new party, which we all know it is not, as it is a constant bleeding out of membership or affiliation. If you start as the head and work your way down, you are left with rump at a certain point. But we all know that the only thing remaining with the Republicans is the asshole, out of which they speak.
