I see it the same way. Religion has usurped rationale, which is typical of religion. No one in their right mind would listen to Bauer or Coulter.

Not mentioned is the two factions of the Democratic party, the moderates and the liberals. The moderates are gaining there too. The exact purpose of the fringe right and left have always been questionable, but are even more so in a less partisan Congress.

There's nothing wrong with having moderate views - but don't expect the GOP to represent them. Having a strong third party - one that could bridge the gap - could be nice, but a more effective idea would probably be to join the Democratic Party and help it stay closer to the middle.
