    Ike was right about them, and Rockefeller too. And even though the wingnuts may eventually destroy the Republican party, in the meantime, they elected Reagan twice, and a Bush three times. They took over the House in 1994, etc.

    For failures, that looks a whole lot of success.

    Our problem is two-fold. Republican wingnuts are but half the problem. The other half is, we are, half of us, a nation of poorly educated, bigoted Archie Bunkers, and we vote for them. I don't know what to do about that.

    “Americans are fighters. We're tough, resourceful and creative, and if we have the chance to fight on a level playing field, where everyone pays a fair share and everyone has a real shot, then no one - no one - can stop us. ”-- Elizabeth Warren
