Republican death spiral continues

From Roger Simon at Politico on May 12 comes this story about the upcoming Special Meeting of the Republican National Committee. It turns out that the resolution Chairman Michael Steele opposed and the wingnuts intend to pass is to rename the Democratic Party the "Democrat Socialist Party". If the GOP's wingnuts really get carried away, we could end up seeing them rename their opponents the "America-Hating Democrat Socialist Secret Gay Muslim Abortionist Party". Simon notes:

A further comeuppance — a vote of “no confidence” in Steele — is not being contemplated, I am informed, because Steele’s opponents in the RNC have already won a major victory by forcing him to accept greater controls on how he spends party funds.
I still say they'll become drunk with power and vote out Steele anyway.
