Sooner or later, everyone will figure out that my politial views tend to the liberal. One result of that is I tend to read liberal sources. Notably blogs at Talking Points Memo and The New Republic.
Ever since the election, I have seen many posts on various outlets concerning the diminishment of the Republican Party. Today brings yet one more: http://blogs.tnr.com/blog/the-plank/tnrtv-how-limbaugh-and-cheney-are-killing-the-gop
The GOP is becoming a regional party. The GOP is increasingly comprised of only the extreme right base. Etc. Etc.
Who will save the Republican Party? Are we in danger of becoming a one party country?
Don’t worry about it.
The Democratic Party will see to it that the Republican Party will enjoy a resurgence. Maybe not in 2010. Maybe not in 2012. But the time will come when the Democratic Party will just get too carried away and the country will look to the Republican Party for salvation.
Just like the Republican Party was the recent salvation of the Democratic Party.
Rumors of the death of the Republican Party are greatly exaggerated.
07/22/2013 Update: The New Republic changed up their web site and the link I posted became broken. I have changed the link to what I believe is the page I originally linked to. Unfortunately, the content of the tnr post was mostly in a video which does not seem to be available anymore.
