GOP AGONISTES….A (depressed) conservative friend writes to say that George Bush has single-handedly destroyed the Republican Party. But based on the Pew survey that prompted his comment (see below) I’d say that Bush had some help. The Gingrichization of the Republican Party has taken its toll.

But the GOP isn’t doomed any more than the Democrats were in 1980. They’re just in for a few years of soul searching.
