The Rethug Brand
For a great summary of what ails the Rethuglican Party, you have to read Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman's column in the New York Times today. From the "Southern strategy", which aimed to win votes through appeals to racism, to the Reaganesque "government is the problem" mantra that led to Rethug mismanagement of government (after all, if government's the problem, why should it be well-managed?), Krugman outlines the Rethugs' path to their current dilemma.
Not your "party of Lincoln" anymore.
