    Don't you think that the Teaparty take over of the Republican Party is doing just that?

    Even folks who identify as Republican are out there GOTV to re-elect President Obama.

    Today's Republican Party is far too extreme for most folks. Of course the talking heads in the Village don't seem willing to touch that one with a ten foot pole.

      As much as I like it when the other side self-destructs, you can't rely on the other side's stupidity to win. They won't always be in thrall to the far right, and we have to be prepared to be able to win over the center when they come back to their senses. The real enemy to progressivism isn't far-right conservatism, but rather slick center-right neoliberalism, because it SEEMS sensisble to centrists. We have to craft a messaging framework that wins over these people before the other side has a chance to do so again. And it will, sooner than we think.
