GOP Moderates versus GOP Extremists

David Frum on Twitter:

Jeb Bush, you picked this fight. Now win it. Don't back down!

Do the Bruce Bartletts, David Frums, and Jeb Bushes in the GOP have any chance of reclaiming the Party and bringing it back to sanity? If Republicans lose the election, the after-loss soul-searching will likely conclude that extremism was a problem, and perhaps there's a chance for more moderate voices to take control. But if Republicans win (shudder), the rightward drift on both sides of the political aisle is likely to continue. We will not be a "kinder, gentler" nation.
