1. Back that date up to December 12, 2000

when a republican partisan radical right wing activist judge stopped the vote count moving in Goreís direction, and appointed a clearly unqualified incompetent governor as the guy to fail in keeping the country safe, lose both his revenge wars, crush the nationís economy, and left leave town with half my 401(k) nest egg.

It broke for good 20 years ago imho.

2. Excellent point. And then there was Ohio in 2004.

They've gotten into the habit of "winning" by cheating, they see that as their only winning strategy...

3. I'd back it up to 1980 myself.

Republicans conspiring with Iran-Contra. And the damage to policy became pellucidly* clear from Reagan's inauguration and going forward.

Malaise
