It's not difficult to imagine a few years from now a political landscape controlled by a Democratic dynasty, where the only Republicans left in office come from states and districts where the small minority of folks who voted for them share their ignorant, intolerant 1950's ideals.
Yes, I know that Mr. Rubio had a rough, parched night when he gave the Republican response to President Obama's State of Union Address. But licking your lips, sweating bullets and grabbing for water doesn't seem enough to go from Savior to... Folly.
For Democrats this is too good to be true. While Republicans continue to try to smear former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over Benghazi, she long ago accepted her share of responsibility, and her popularity continues to tower above all national figures in American public life.
The conservative National Review magazine has an amusing article about the far-right reincarnation of Joe McCarthy, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), considering a run for the presidency. It's not intended to be amusing, I don't think, but it is.
