Demonrats cannot win without 90+% of the black vote and huge numbers of union thugs voting for them. Republicans have no chance without the evangelical Christian base. Many of them are truly stupid enough to throw us under the bus - witness the selection of Rombama! But they will be a permanent minority if they do so. Actually, the Tea Party rallies that I attend have a very strong evangelical flavor to them. It is actually best if the GOP goes the way of the Whigs and the Tea Party, the real conservative party, takes over the conservative mantra!
