Moderate Republicans?

As I have been saying to anyone who'll listen, the country has been shifting right for a long time. So far right that Reagan would not be elected by these Republicans. Moderate Republicans are becoming extinct.

A glance at this chart from Stuart Benjamin at should settle it:

The Senate, for example was never as liberal in the last thirty years as it is conservative today. You have far fewer moderates than you did in the eighties, almost none among the GOP.

I do not even want to look at the House.

No, the only thing you're right about is the Democratic Party is not aggressive enough; it does not respond appropriately to the idiocy of the Do-Nothing GOP cum Tea Bagger Plutarch Corporatachracy, the coprophagous lock-step inbreds.
