GOP Working Fast And Furiously For Permanent Minority Status

... as evidenced by their doing business as usual. As Mark Tapscott puts it, both the Senate GOP and the House GOP have opted for familiarity and continuity instead of radical change in the wake of last Tuesday's massive election defeat.

The GOP appears to be under the delusion that the election was all about Iraq - it wasn't. The GOP lost because conservatives lost confidence in the GOP and its leadership, and stayed home instead of bothering to vote. Yes, the center went left to state a message, and they along with the rest of the nation will suffer, and may die, from it. However, what the GOP doesn't get is that they lost the election because "they" lost the election.

In choosing John Boehner as minority leader and Roy Blunt as whip in the House, Mitch McConnell and Trent Lott in the Senate, and Mel "Amnesty for all" Martinez for GOP chair, the Grand Old Party has proven that they have no interest in their base and come 08, their base is going to have no interest in them either.

Mary Katharine Ham agrees - Same Old, Same Old ....:

Hey guys? Want more of the same? Isn't that what you meant when you voted Republicans out of office?

Good news. The Republican Party delivers!

Hot Air's disgusted too.

So, any idea how the GOP is going to do in 08 with the entire right side of the blogosphere disgusted with them? I do!
