Not Buck delivers a stinging eulogy for the Republican Revolution.
Welcome to my world.
Though I believe the Revolution, such as it was, died long ago. Given the condition of the corpse, I'd peg the demise at around December 19, 1998, when Speaker-elect Bob Livingston resigned during the impeachment follies after it became widely known that he, like Bill and Newt and Henry Hyde and who knows how many others, had been a wayward spouse.
The Republicans settled on the little-known but generally liked Dennis Hastert as their new leader. It was a safe choice. A drab choice. And they have never recovered from it.
