Republicans keep running to the right as fast as you can, but don't be surprised if the majority of the American people don't follow you.

Not only has their crazy train derailed, now they want to burn the wreckage. Go for it, I want you to. Please?

This doesn't help (from the NY Times):

Hard-Nosed Approach Wins Votes in the South, but Lacks Broader Appeal

NEW ORLEANS — In Bibb County, Ala., on Tuesday, a Democrat named Walter Sansing was in a race for county commissioner against a Republican named Charles Beasley, who was on the ballot despite the inconvenience of having died several weeks earlier. Mr. Beasley won.

That is what kind of Election Day it was in the South. Elsewhere Republicans may be wailing and gnashing teeth, but in the mid- and Deep South states, they had yet another cycle of unchecked domination.

For the first time since Reconstruction, Republicans took over the Arkansas legislature, and won the state’s last United States House of Representatives seat held by a Democrat. North Carolina elected a Republican governor and took over at least three Congressional seats. The last Democrat in a statewide office in Alabama was defeated. In most Southern states, the margins of victory for Mitt Romney were even larger than the lopsided margins for John McCain four years ago. [...]

How do you convince these guys to budge even a fraction of an inch when they're winning by doubling down?

Centrist/moderate republicans need to finalize their painful divorce with the extremist GOP. I know, existing third parties are just variations of the same republican extremism. So start a new party already, even if the right-wing scream machine says it sounds like the democrat's party platform. I'd probably join it. We need a healthy two party system.

I used to complain about "me too' election races. But I'd welcome those types of campaigns back after seeing how far the republicans have gone. No, Romney's flip-flopping didn't count as "me too." More like, "(not?) me too."
