Can Republicans Be Saved?

I rarely put political posts on this blog, because this is an arts blog, but this article in the New York Times is really fascinating. The Republican party received a shocking thrashing during the last presidential election, and the party is in trouble. Deep trouble. In fact, the Republican party literally faces a slow extinction.

Young Republicans, alarmed at this prospect, are trying to alert the old guard of this impending extinction if they don't change, but the GOP leadership is stuck in denial. The principles of Republicanism aren't necessarily wrong; it's the right-wing extremism that's killing the party. They ignore it at their peril.
