    They are paying a big one today.  

    All of their extremist rhetoric is simply the kind of speaking in tongues you do when you are in death throes.  Sure - they may gain power back in 2010, but they have lost the future.  The next generation has rejected their ideology and demographics show that their influence will never be the same as it was until they change.

    The real lesson here is for us.  we need to resist the urge to become them.  Too many of us are plunging headlong into the same mentality that led to teabaggery.  They were so demoralized by years of GOP domination that they long to avenge the past by fighting fire with fire.  This is a dead end.  A road to disaster.

    We win by being the big tent party.  By being the party of compassion.  The more we become like them, the more we legitimize their tactics and their ideology.

    We are winning.  Lets not fuck it up.
