14 years ago, the the political depravity of the GOP was so widely known that Aaron Sorkin had to invent a fictional Ethical Republican to stand against his party's plan to use Congressional hearings as means to destroy the President's chief of staff.
14 years later that same party is now a thousand times more savage, dangerous and openly insane than it was back during the good old civilized days of Whitewater, Vince Foster and the impeachment of a sitting President for lying about getting a blowjob.
The days of worrying about "killing the party" are long over. The Party of Lincoln is dead. It is time to get on with the business of figuring out the swiftest and most efficient way of caging and neutering the rabid monster that killed it.
