"Republicans Are The Problem"

I didn't say it.

These scholars did.

We have been studying Washington politics and Congress for more than 40 years, and never have we seen them this dysfunctional. In our past writings, we have criticized both parties when we believed it was warranted. Today, however, we have no choice but to acknowledge that the core of the problem lies with the Republican Party.

The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.

They are also contemptuous of academics, so this will not impress them one bit.

Jefferson County to Joel Kleefisch and Matt Morony: why are you allowing Herr Environmental poop on us?
