    But how long can a political party last when their idea of a candidate or an election amounts to one big, long howl at reality?

    What possible legislative goal could Allen West accomplish?  What possible role does he have as a statesman or a leader?  

    You are right.  He could win.  But it's a sign of the bankruptcy of the GOP when their candidates have only one volume - LOUD - and only one message - Arrghhhhh!

      That's the billion dollar question, isn'tit?
      I figured they were toast when the best they could do was W. Then McShame/Palin! Then Rmoney/Rayn! they scraped the bottom of the barrel in 2000 and kept scraping.
      Eventually it has to catch up with them, but they have promoted the absolute worst elements of their Big Tent, purged the remaining  Reasonable Republicans and what's left should be laughed out of town, but NO!
      I have (wrongly) predicted the breakup of the GOP every couple years since about 1999, so I'm not going to try to guess when it will happen.

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
