Tomorrow's Conventional Wisdom Today

Via VandeHarris:
Arlen Specter’s break from Republicans is the latest in a trip-hammer series of reversals that leaves the GOP more beaten and less popular than either major party has been in decades.

Amid gloating among Democrats and recriminations among Republicans, the Specter divorce is both symptom and cause of the GOP collapse — leaving the opposition party on the brink of irrelevance in Barack Obama’s Washington and facing few obvious paths back to power.
Those are two pretty sweeping graphs, not exactly worthy of the intense self-satisfaction many conservatives have been demonstrating in the wake of Specter's departure.

Making matters worse, the GOP lost out to the supposed Gaffe-o-Matic.
