House GOP a ‘Permanent Minority’?

That’s the way Rick Moran sees it:

The math is frightening. . . . [T]here is a very good chance that Democrats, for all practical purposes, could win enough seats this year that the GOP would be a minority party for the next decade – and perhaps beyond. When 98% of incumbents in the House are victorious and redistricting looms in 2012, the chances of Republicans overcoming a 40 or 50-seat Democratic majority in the next couple of election cycles are slim.

Moran blames this on the wave of retirements by House Republicans. It might make more sense to blame the problem on certain Republicans (inter alia, Mark Foley and Bob Ney) who didn’t retire soon enough.
