Republicans think they want to win, but they really want to lose; they think they want to live, but they really want to die.
A friend tells me that Rush Limbaugh is beside himself today over the Republican convention, that they’re treating the election as some ordinary event, and not going after Obama at all.
When will Limbaugh realize that the very raison d’être of the Republicans is to allow themselves to be defeated by the Democrats? And when will he realize that the same is true of himself?
Wait—that sounds crazy, right? We know that the Republicans, including Limbaugh, are passionately eager to win.
Yes, they are passionately eager to win. But above and beyond their desire to win they have a higher priority, which is to be race-blind and non-discriminatory and universalist. So they support the immigration policy which has Hispanicized and Third-Worldized California and put that one-time Republican state forever outside the electoral reach of the GOP, and is steadily doing the same to the rest of the country as well. And they don’t see the contradiction. They continue to expend all their mortal energy on winning elections, even as they embrace the immigration that is turning America into a proletarian leftist country that will never again elect a Republican congress or a Republican president.
And nothing will ever reach them and get them to change their mind. The Republicans will keep blindly following their suicidal script until they go out of existence. They are as delusional as, say, the Israeli left which still believes in the peace process. But at least Israel has a right-wing party, which has defeated and marginalized the delusional Israeli left. Where is the American right-wing that will correct the delusional Republicans? It doesn’t exist. The Republicans are as right-wing as America will ever get.

I disagree. It’s not so much that Republicans don’t want to win as it is that they aren’t serious about winning. For Limbaugh and his fellow Republicans, the political process is a game that they want to win, but heretofore only within the rules and/or constraints set for them by the left. Hence, when large-scale amnesty bills are being considered, rank-and-file Republican activists mobilize to defeat them by putting pressure on their politicians even as they remain incapable of openly articulating the demographic rationale for their efforts, as that would be against the rules. In any case, the Republican party is neither wholly serious nor completely worthless, which is why some of us vacillate between throwing in the towel and caring about its success.Ed H. writes:
