I work in socia/marketing research. After reading every one of the comments here, it is scientifically telling that the vast majority of respondees who agree with Buchannan's premise that the GOP is dead BY ITS OWN HAND are demographicaly white, male, retired or nearly so, angry, probably very religious and willing -- because it's generally been their bent in life - to always blame someone else. Just like Pat.
Unfortunately for guys like Pat and most readers here, the demography of the country is permanently changing, along with cultural attitudes and national expectations.The world Pat made his life in, just like his forefathers, is no longer and will not be coming back.
Grin and bear it or emotionally die a slow death like Pat.
