    Wash st hasn't had a GOP gov since 1980. (biggest gov drought in the USA for GOP gov)

    Could be that long before the USA has another GOPpresident.

    Yeah I know - it sucks..................................

    The GOP may disband all together and form into another party

    I still remember the death of the Democratic Party after Mondale lost in the worst defeat in history.

    Oh, wait. They're still here.


    While the current GOP is indeed a suicide cult and is eating its own, it will not go away. Not unless a viable third major party is born. Then both parties are in trouble.

    It does not bode well for pseudo-conservatives.
