    GOP math: more division than addition

    Posted by: Chris

    The Politico's Ben Smith reports on the way support -- or even conversation -- with the Log Cabin Republicans remains something that those seeking to run the GOP run away from at warp speed.

    First, Smith posted an item than an aide to Saul Anuzis, a candidate for chairman of the Republican National Committee, had responded positively to an inquiry from Patrick Sammon, the Log Cabin president. "I think you will find him to be a very reasonable individual who does not seek to grow the party by dividing it," the aide said in the exchange.

    Later, in an update, Anuzis sets the record straight, so to speak:

    "I have no knowledge of this email. I have never contacted this group, I have never had any correspondence with them, I have not sought their support nor have I ever talked to anyone from their group. So I have no idea what this could be about, but it was not at my request or authorization."

    Is it any wonder that a new Gallup report shows only five remaining "red states" solidly in GOP hands?

      Normally, I would say that the Republicans stand a good chance of going the way of the Whigs, except that the Democrats and Republicans have been able, through writing the elections laws, to institutionalize themselves in such a way that it's nearly impossible for anyone not a Democrat or Republican to run for office.

      Whenever I see a red/blue map, I wonder just what is wrong with the red states. First I thought it was a lack of good beaches - the Caribbean states also get hurricanes... Now I think it's just density. The people just don't run into enough other people to challenge their perceptions.
      I wouldn't mind a 3rd party, maybe if the republicans get beat down hard enough, another party will become possible.

      The republican is pretty solid on population.
