Tuesday's Republican response to the President's State of the Union Address was proof positive that today's Republican Party is in purgatory.
Yes, I said it. The party of Lincoln and Douglass is in a place that may, or may not be, temporary punishment for its sins. Escape from purgatory will depend largely on who the party looks to as its messiah.
Today's Republican Party is overwhelmingly white and male. By most metrics, the party is antagonistic to issues of consequence to African Americans, women, Hispanics and the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
If you believe in women's rights, civil rights, voting rights, conservationism, the science of climate change, or comprehensive immigration reform with a meaningful pathway to citizenship, there's no room for you in today's party.
If you are labeled a "moderate," or if you reach across the aisle and work on a bi-partisan basis for the good of the nation, there's no room for you in today's party.
None of this is news.

THAT statement describes the DFL for the past several decades!
