This little ditty, from Calvin Trillin about the Dubya administration, shows us how far to the right the GOP has moved since then:

Our policies address the cares
Of heiresses and millionaires.
Our point of view reverberates
With folks who live behind high gates
And folks whose country clubs may lack
A single Jew, a single black.
We're backed by all the CEOs.
We waive the regs that bring them woes.
To comfort them is our intent.
Yes, though we always represent
The folks who sit in corporate boxes,
The gratifying paradox is ---
And this we love; it's just the neatest ---
The other party's called elitist.


If that was only what is wrong with them now.
