For some time I've been thinking that the likely end point for the Republican Party will be for whoever is left that is not infected with the Trump virus to unite with what we used to call Blue Dog Democrats to form a new conservative group. In some ways this might be what No Labels already is. This fusion would render the characters like Gaetz and Greene and their ilk irrelevant- vestigial, marginal figures whose sole agenda is self-aggrandizement. Of course, in order for this to happen it would be necessary to find enough Republican who believe that government and governance are important, and the prion disease that Ronald Reagan infected them with earlier may have already whipped those Republicans out.

I'm not advocating for this outcome- the conservative impulse in American politics is not something I'd like to see encouraged- but the present Republican Party is not a sustainable entity
