"What has happened to the GOP, much to the consternation of the elite party establishment, is that it has become a party of paranoid conspiracy freaks, religious kooks, bigots, the marginally insane, and amateur grifters like Joe the Plumber.

"...This, in a nutshell, is why Mitt Romney, the only plausibly qualified candidate running for president in the GOP, is having such a hard time winning what should be a cakewalk primary.

"This party is no longer the party of the country club or even of Ronald Reagan. This is a party unhinged from reality. This is the party of Palin."

I still think the winner of the 2012 presidential election will depend on the price of gas and/or terrorism attacks (or the lack of them).

But I also think Republicans would have had a much easier race against Obama if the rational intelligent Republicans were still in charge of the party.

Independents won't vote for radicals. Romney, who is rational, is now tarred with the brush of the radicals because he has pandered to the fringes so much in the campaign.
