No Frenemies on the Right

Lots of stories lately on how the GOP seems to have reacted to consecutive tidal wave defeats in 2006 and 2008 by deciding they've suffered from an excess of centrism, moderation, good sense, and human decency in the Bush years. The most obvious implication, of course, is that it could be a long time in the wilderness for the party of Limbaugh. True that. These guys do know how to bring the crazy. But there's another way to think about the warp from dumb to dumber. Elections are usually referendums on the incumbent. If Obama and his boys on the Hill can't pull off the recovery, we could be in for a few years that will make us long for the Bushies. Now what might THAT look like?
