Maybe the Republicans need another 40 years in the wilderness

I don't often, or as much as I should look to the bible for a comparison, but Exodus may be a good source. As I recall from the years my parents sent me to bible study, I think the story of Jews leaving Egypt is fitting here. They left with Moses for freedom, but then they want back to the Pagan ways of Egypt. God cursed them to wander the desert for 40 years, "until this generation passes away".

The Republicans were out of government control (three branches) for 40 years until the Dubya administration. Once in control the Republicans abandoned the conservative, libertarian, small government principals they stood for and became big government progressive democrats.

Just maybe they need another 40 years in the wilderness, until this generation (of republican leadership) passes away.
