    and trying not to let myself get swept away by the emotion of witnessing it, but reading Romesh Ponnaru's column linked today in the pundit roundup, it's really hard not to accept that Ronald Reagan's GOP has finally collapsed and that Mitt Romney was the agent of its destruction.

    This time might just do it.  If kos's predictions about Texas latinos bear fruit, the GOP itself as a national party may not survive the decade.  Turning itself into the party of the racist militia movement and anti-abortion doctor murderers did not do it any favors.

    A right of center party will almost certainly reemerge after the Republicans disappear, just as the Republicans themselves emerged to replace the Whigs and the Whigs had emerged to occupy the space the Federalists had once had.  But I really do doubt the GOP itself can survive this crisis.
