If Trump gets the GOP nod

Jon Chait: "You can imagine a world in which [Donald Trump] could win the nomination. That would be a world in which the Republican Party as an organized political force, as opposed to a collection of voters, ceases to exist. It would be like the end of the Roman Empire, when anybody who can grab some soldiers together can call himself the Emperor. But, while the GOP establishment may have lost some power, we don't live in anything resembling a world like that right now." Sane Republicans better hope Chait is right. Otherwise, meet the new Nero.
