With likely minorities of 41-59 in the Senate and 178-257 in the House, Republicans -- who just four years ago seemed on the cusp of long-term dominance -- have less leverage than any minority in recent memory."While it's kind of fun to gloat right now, this isn't necessarily a good thing, long term. I don't really believe in the possibility of permanent majorities, overall, and I don't believe any party (even mine) left without opposition can maintain it's integrity of vision over long periods of time.
Furthermore, Republicans' internal divisions "have been exacerbated by fights over the weakened party's future.
The GOP needs to get it's act together, drop the social conservative, kick out the wing-nuts, and offer voters something that actually addresses the problems they face in their real lives, not fabricated threats they worry about only in election cycles.
And for the love of... stop giving Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Hannity, and Chuck Norris the party megaphone!
