[P]oll data like this could indicate that the Republican Party is getting ready to relive the classic cycle of ruling parties who get turned out of power in a landslide: With the party base itself shrunk down, the people who are still around are the most hard-line members, and are really the least fit people to fix the situation."The people who are still around" represent 46% of the electorate, voters who held their noses and voted for a RINO in an election where the decisive factors were (a) the unpopularity of Bush, and (b) the media's leg-thrilling raptures over St. Obama of Chicago, whose amorphously vague rhetoric (tax cuts for 95%!) went unexamined even as a function of simple mathematics, to say nothing of more complex fiscal and economic questions. (One more time: It. Won't. Work.)If 46% is the rock-bottom insoluble core of the anti-"progressive" vote, the GOP's problems are not as dire as they seem, and the solution may be as simple as nominating a candidate who's not a grumpy, bald 73-year-old RINO. Gee, can anybody here think of such a candidate?
