Harkening back to my first post here, recall my point that the party that votes together matters.
In that vein it’s important to point out that the GOP took a huge step towards irrelevance yesterday when moderate Republicans refused to go along with Medicare cuts, ANWR drilling and irresponsible tax cuts, and fringe Republicans refused to give up on any of those. If this goes on we will basically have a parliamentary system with two or three 25% parties on the right and one 45% party on the left.
Until the 2006 elections, of course. Carpetbagger has the details.
