Okay, that is going too far. But Krugman's post on Eric Cantoring into the sunset does align with my long-held perception that the institutional structure of the "permanent governing majority" that Rove, Norquist, et al. built has largely dissolved. This doesn't say anything one way or the other about whether our politics will become saner -- they could spin out in all kinds of ways. But it does say that the K Street Project and its associated plans have gang agley.
