But, I am also encouraged in a bizarre way. If enough extremists win in the Republican party primaries between now and 2016, as they appear to be doing, the Repubs will be stuck with another unwinnable presidential candidate and another unwinnable national election. This would, obviously, be good for the country, especially if the new and inferior party of no, formerly known as the Republicans, win Congress in November. At least the White House can be a firewall against further tea party idiocy.
Thanks for reading. I'll try to have better news next time.
