REPUBLICANS: "My God, what (an effing) mess---A loss is what the GOP's political class NOW expects." [View all]


The Lost Party
The strangest primary season in memory reveals a GOP thatís tearing itself apart.

By John Heilemann




John Heilemann notes many Republicans "are already looking past 2012. If either Romney or Santorum gains the nomination and then falls before Obama, flubbing an election that just months ago seemed eminently winnable, it will unleash a GOP apocalypse on November 7 -- followed by an epic struggle between the regulars and red-hots to refashion the party. And make no mistake: A loss is what the GOP's political class now expects."

Said GOP strategist Ed Rollins: "Six months before this thing got going, every Republican I know was saying, 'We're gonna win, we're gonna beat Obama.' Now even those who've endorsed Romney say, "My God, what (an effing) mess."'
