Columnist Charles M. Blow, known to readers of this column as Charles M. Blowhard, points to the lowly estate of that political party that has gained control of the House of Representatives, the Supreme Court, the majority of governors’ mansions (30), and the majority of state legislatures (Republicans 27, Democrats 17), all at the expense of the Democratic Party. Play it again, Charles:

The Republican Party is experiencing an existential crisis, born of its own misguided incongruity with modern American culture and its insistence on choosing intransigence in a dynamic age of fundamental change. Instead of turning away from obsolescence, it is charging headlong into it, becoming more strident and pushing away more voters whom it could otherwise win.
