  •  Not likely. Frum's a neocon (9+ / 0-)

    And Baker certainly is not.

    Folks like Frum (or Bobo from the Times, whatever his name is) will split with GOP orthodoxy on economics, but not on foreign policy.  And folks like Baker will put up with the economic policy (he's a cold hearted bastard, that Baker is), but will split on foreign policy.

    But by now, we know how the Obama administration deals with those who would destroy it: it goes straight for the capillaries. --Krugman

      The policy people in the Republican Party -- the folks who know shit -- aren't particularly welcome. Seems that the party is held together by chicken wire, duct tape, fear, and hate.

      That combination of fear and hate is volatile, though. It gave us the KKK, but it also gave us the Know-Nothings, who burned out fast. The modern Republican Party doesn't really have the cohesion that made the KKK powerful, so what happens when that fear burns out and that hate cools? Is there enough in there for there to even be a Republican Party?
