Did you hear the GOP is about to die?

https://newrepublic.com/article/132094/republican-party-donald-trump

"One way or another, the Republican Party is about to ruptureóthe only question is from which side...."

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/28/us/politics/donald-trump-republican-voters.html?_r=0

"As the Republican Party collapses on itself, conservative leaders struggling to explain Mr. Trumpís appeal have largely seized on his unique qualities as a candidate.... Others ascribe Mr. Trumpís rise to the xenophobia and racism of Americans angry over their declining power."

http://www.cnn.com/2016/03/24/opinions/republicans-slow-motion-implosion-opinion-axelrod/

"Privately, and to some degree publicly, Republicans seem resigned to death in November by fire or by hanging."

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/28/opinion/republican-self-destruction.html

"Indeed, the entirety of the Republican Party seems dead set on convincing voters that it has lost its way and is spinning out of control, consumed with anger and devoid of answers."

Hooray! Let me know where they bury the GOP so I can pee on their grave. Can I afford health care now? But let me tell you something important: evil never dies, and in that sense the Republican Party will always live in the hearts of asshole-Americans.

1. Yes. In 1974.

 

The reports of its death have been greatly exaggerated.

6. I recall that death notice

As Nixson flew away we were told we would never see a Republican elected president again...

3. Proud to say I predate that skit.

Because I am very, very old now. How old, you ask?

I am quite old. There was a point to this but I forget what it was.

4. Its not dying

The elites in DC are just making it official that it has been reincarnated as the Democratic party.

Think of it as a snake shedding its old skin for a new skin.
