  •  Interesting diary, thanks. (11+ / 0-)

    The Republicans have enjoyed such a run these past 30 years by keeping their true goals and intent vague. This way, they win over low-information voters, because they're seen as likeable and whatever. Perhaps the arrogance and over-reach we've seen these past few months has been the logical conclusion of their ongoing success--and it may just doom them.

      Repubs doing their thing, it won't doom them. They may take their lumps from time to time but they'll always retain the strength even from the minority to get steady cuts in the entire social safety and high-finance safety nets.

      --Unless they're opposed by a progressive party that delivers progressive policy. We're-not-them isn't a sustainable message, as we saw in the greatest election defeat in living memory last fall.
