I feel like we're watching the Republican Party drown in its own vomit: the party is dying, and it ain't death with dignity.
In recent years, the GOP has had many "jump the shark" moments, but I think the popularity of Rick Santorum may be the straw that gagged the camel. Every day it's a new set of absurd lies and religious delusions /psychosexual fantasies. Now he's saying that prenatal testing (which is 100% responsible medical care for expectant mothers) is sinful and Obama uses this to abort handicapped people.
He's saying the Protestant church is controlled by Satan, that the Netherlands is euthanizing elderly people against their will... I think his disturbed mind actually believes these outrageous lies -- he's completely disconnected from reality. And yet he's the Republican front-runner.
Is anyone in the party asking themselves how they arrived at this new low?
The current incarnation of the Republican party seems so out of touch with mainstream America that I think after they lose the next election, it may split into two parties:
1) a fiscally-conservative/socially moderate/libertarian party
2) the religious theocrats who want to control everyone's private lives
The two wings are too different from each other to stay in the same party forever... in many ways they're opposites. Plus I assume they'll eventually get tired of losing elections, right?
