First of many to come.

You hear that sound of the Blue Wave, Republicants?

It is the sound of ... inevitability.

"...investment in education and transportation, civil rights, environmental protection, and well managed and effective government."

Sounds like a Democrat to me!

"Forty years ago, I volunteered on my first Republican campaign. Later, I worked on Dan Evanís first gubernatorial campaign"

Uh, _I_ worked on Dan Evans's (not Evan's) first gub campaign (I hung streamers as a child), and that was forty-three years ago. His math is off. "Later" my ass.

This makes me feel better about living on the Dark Side (i.e. the Quah). We are growing, and we will outnumber you!

So according to him Democrats evolved to adopt Republican values. This begs the question in which direction is the Republican Evolution?

Fascist with a Communistic overlay mostly. The Libertarians are a small insurgent group ignored by their party, think Ron Paul ...

When he first ran for the legislature in the 41st, a mutual friend told me he yelled at Fred for running as an R and not a D. Jarrett reportedly pointed out that he's a moderate, he disagrees with both parties, and "It's the 41st!"

Sounds like the demographics have changed a wee bit. Or the Rs have.

Nowadays, you have to realize national polls are flawed - they try to pick a self-identified group with 50 percent Dems and 50 percent GOPs, and the problem is most people identify as 54 percent Dems, 16 percent Independent, and 30 percent GOP nowadays.

It's going to be a long tall Blue Wave and the crush of the surf will sweep away a lot of people who should have wised up a long time ago.
