5. The Republican Party: The Adults Have Left The Room

During the last decade or so of the Cold War, I voted for Republican Presidential candidates. I hated doing it and I could already see the Republicans moving away from centrist sanity on domestic policy, but they did seem to have the edge on foreign policy and the military.

After eight years of Dubya and nearly three and a half years of Individual One, that pool of expertise and the Republicansí willingness to use it is done, finished, ended, and gone, gone.

Ending the Open Skies agreement is yet another sign of how things have shifted to the worse.

Anybody who thinks that the Republican Party still can manage foreign policy and military affairs is either woefully uninformed, self-blinded, or so blinded by prejudice and ideology that they have become willing dupes of unfriendly foreign powers.
