“The party of Reagan is dead. What has emerged in its place is something unspeakable.”– Daniel W. Drezner, Fletcher School at Tufts, former Republican.


This is the peroration of an article by Daniel Drezner in the Washington Post on July 16, 2019 at 2:25 PM.  The article is titled, “What do Republicans stand for in 2019?  The only plausible answer to this question is beyond depressing.”

There’s that “depressing” label again.  There’s enough of this mood, especially expressed by columnists, particularly ex-Republicans, flowing out to sink the most buoyant spirits.
