Palin/Beck 2012.

The radicalization of the GOP is complete.

Very nice party they're building there.


The lesson of NY-23, if one is to be drawn (and regardless of whether Doug Hoffman wins or loses), is that the Republican right wing is now the dominant wing of the party. If, when GOP presidential aspirants position themselves in earnest for the party primary in 2011, the tenor of the candidates resembles that of Hoffman and his major supporters, I'd bet on Obama to win in a rout.
The right wing has been the dominant wing of the party for some time now, and yes -- relegating the wingnut candidate to the veep slot a la Agnew or Palin won't cut it this time 'round.
