A question occurred to me today, as I was headed back from the dentist's office to the day job.
Someone on the radio had been explaining that the Republican Party is toast ... how it is that their opposition is a poor black guy, presiding over a dead economy, but the GOPpers are so brain-dead and bereft of first-rank political talent that they're about to lose -- again -- to O'Patches. The Republican braintrust: Angry-Pants McCain, last time, and Mittens the Plastic Mormon this time. Probably true, I thought, and ... yeah, that's okay. Good thing about this election is that one of these clowns assuredly loses it. Bad thing ... the other one wins. But, you take the bad with the good: what's your alternative?
But then I thought about the poor, stupid, hopeless GOP, and I thought: what if the Republican Party simply went out of business? No more RNC, no more fundraisers, no more conventions, no more candidates. Just: "You win. We're done."
Seriously: I wonder what would happen. Anyone have a theory?
I doubt it would be nearly as good for the Democratic political machine as one might, at first, think.
Nope, it won't happen. I don't think the death of either caucus of the War Party is anything our supervisors would ever permit. Kind of a fun thing to think about, though.
