Backing Away

“Who would ever have thought blacks would get out and support the first black president?  Who would ever have thought women would shy away from the party of transvaginal probes?  Who would ever have thought gays would work against a party that treated them as immoral and subhuman?  Who would have ever thought young people would desert a party that ignored science and hectored on social issues?  Who would ever have thought Latinos would scorn a party that expected them to finish up their chores and self-deport?”

– Columnist Maureen Dowd, on the declining state of the Republican Party.  She coquettishly compares the GOP to the ancient Mayans; noting that the latter civilization self-destructed from internal bickering and a long-term refusal to progress.  Then again, at least the Mayans left behind some things of value.
