  •  Great diary, 'course they won't listen (5+ / 0-)

    But nice try. Personally I see the Repub party going through what Britain's labor party went through in the 80s - a series of losses and growing ideologic rigidity that didn't end until they had been thumped badly enough that they were willing to listen to Tony Blair's 'third way' - Mr Blair's ideology being very similar, by the way to Mr. Obama's, if you leave out the Iraq warmongering (which I think was largely caused by him being duped by his BFF George Bush and misplaced idealism to rid the world of someone who really was a brutal and evil man). So I think the Repubs are going to become MORE ideologic and racist and backward looking because they still haven't been beaten badly enough. It is only when the lose the house as well - when you do get that single party rule - that they will reconstitute themselves into something resembling sanity.

    I mean, really, who among us doesn't think that frothy Ricky Santorum is secretly pleased because he thinks this is 1976 all over again, and he'll be the 2016 version of Ronald Reagan?
