    The change has been going on for a long time I agree. I just think on Newt's is the jumping off point for what the Modern Republican Party has become and stands for.


    Nixon started "the Southern Strategy", Reagan as you say married the GOP to the Evangelicals, Newt and company went full crazy.

    He's one of the 5 worst Presidents ever IMO and the only reason he's not top 3 is because the last two Republicans pushed him down.

    It wasn't just his voodoo economics that screwed everyone but the rich.

    All of those things were huge issues before Reagan, of course, but he really brought it home. As Greg said, he tied the evangelicals to the GOP. They're a small minority of the population, but we're all suffering under their policies.

    The latest example of the Lincoln Project still taking aim at Trump's enablers, who might be thinking of running for POTUS.
