I have always said that I thought the Republicans would fall apart after the election and that the extremist factions would battle it out as the lunatics argued that the reason they lost is because they were "not right wing enough".

And bang on cue, here come the nutters with their suggestion for the way forward:

A conservative faction of the Republican National Committee is urging the GOP to take a harder line against both Democrats and wayward Republicans, drafting a resolution to rename the opposition the “Democrat Socialist Party” and moving to rebuke the three Republican senators who supported the stimulus package.

In an e-mail sent Wednesday to the 168 voting members of the committee,
RNC member James Bopp, Jr. accused President Obama of wanting “to restructure American society along socialist ideals.”

“The proposed resolution acknowledges that and calls upon the Democrats to be truthful and honest with the American people by renaming themselves the Democrat Socialist Party,” wrote Bopp, the Republican committeeman from Indiana. “Just as President Reagan’s identification of the Soviet Union as the ‘evil empire’ galvanized opposition to communism, we hope that the accurate depiction of the Democrats as a Socialist Party will galvanize opposition to their march to socialism.”
You see what they are saying? They are saying that the public have not rejected them because of the failure of the Bush years or the fact that Reagan's "deregulate, deregulate, deregulate" policies led to the greatest financial collapse since the Great Depression. They are saying that they lost because the Democrats conned the public by sneaking in, pretending to be moderates, but secretly harboring a Socialist agenda.

They honestly believe that if the public can only see the Obama administration as "Socialist" then they will be swept back into power at the next election.

They are simply clueless. They really don't see themselves as part of the problem at all. That's why they continue to talk about tax cuts and deregulation and all of the crap that has been so thoroughly discredited. It's because they have nothing else in their locker.

They so deserve their place in the political wilderness.
