Say Bye-Bye, Karl
The theory behind it, I guess, is that the political climate when you're age 20 affects your party preference for your entire life. The hypothesis would go something like this: popular presidents produce a swing among 20-year-olds to their own party, and unpopular ones produce a swing in the other direction.
It looks to me like the Christian right's social neanderthalism is causing the Republican Party to lose a generation forever.
I came of age politically during Carter/Reagan, and I remember walking around muttering "Ronald Reagan is the devil" like that was as bad as it could get. Little did I know the plans others were laying to compete for that title at that very moment. Here's hoping that BushCo. has so radicalized a whole generation that they are willing to stand up and say "never again" for decades to come.
How about you?
