    Great diary and linked article.

    It is the GOP turning the GOP into a private business, like they want to do with everything else. It doesn't matter if it works well (prisons, schools), as long as it is free market capitalism. Why not the party itself?

    The weird thing is that it doesn't really matter if they win elections or not. They still have the influence, with a vast horde of followers who will rise up on command, ignore  the facts, and demand whatever they are told to demand. And who will send in more money as well.
