In my life time Ive enevr seen a political party with such a bright future...Well the GOP has a dilemma now.
If they continue to bow to the tea baggers, they will lose election after election.
If they continue to be influenced heavily by the religious right they will lose election after election.
The dilemma now is how to appeal to a wider electorate without their fringes splitting off, or refusing to vote.
They have no choice now to either marginalize the tea baggers and the ultra-religious, or face extinction as a party. How exactly do they do that?
when the democrats were in a similar position of irrelevence in 1988??
they convinced some of their more left wing elements to move center with them..
who much more pro-business than carter was.
