RCP's Harrop: Democrats the Party of 'Normal Americans'

Real Clear Politics' Froma Harrop has a great column up entitled "Democrats the Party of 'Normal Americans'."
Democrats have emerged as champions of horse sense and competent governance. And they're on the offensive, accusing Republicans of downright weirdness in their fiscal recklessness and seeming obsession with the interests of the richest few.
Harrop notices something that the Virginia Leftysphere has known for some time now:
[L]ike the French Revolution before it, Gingrich's so-called conservative revolution was eventually taken over by bizarre ideology.
"Bizarre ideology." Kinda says it all, doesn't it?

All the weird racist, xenophobic, pro-confederate, anti-tax, anti-government, anti-intellectual, deficit-spending, gay-bashing, closeted homosexuality, and financial quackery have finally caught up with the crackpots of the Republican Party. Is it any wonder that ordinary Americans are sick of the Republicans' incompetence and hypocrisy?
