Dick Polman of WHYY in Philadelphia takes a look at how the Republican Party is suddenly confronted by it’s own version of the abyss.
From The Moderate Voice:
It’s thigh-slappingly funny to recall that RNC chairman Reince Priebus said on the eve of this national race that “Republicans will choose from a deep bench of presidential material.”
After the latest round of contests and the latest winnowing of the field, here’s what the GOP is left with: A celebrity hate-peddler whose agenda is built on bluster, a far-right government-crashing ideologue who would lose 40 states, and a governor whose primary season record is 1-28.
Yes, folks, the GOP’s long-gestating existential crisis has finally arrived. What does it stand for as a party?
