OH I do know that, the disgraceful tea baggers and the far religious limbs are what they need to sever, hard to do that when you are already a minority party.<quoted text>
yet you must realize the old GOP has been primaried away....
the ones in safe districts?? are a dwindling lot.
any moderates are heresy to the tea brand.
But dont kid yourself, a more moderate party that came out of severing those limbs would gain quite a few independents, and moderate democrats as well.
I dont see that happening yet, they need a landslide loss first, a hard core right wing nut job that loses in a landslide, then the party will re-think itself.
