Still, maybe we're in for a longer period of impasse than a lot of us imagine.

Good.  Other than repealing Obastardcare and putting some sensible reforms into place, the longer Congress stands still and does nothing other than hold hearings and investigations, the better.  That is, in fact, what the Founders intended.

There are decent arguments for believing this. Let's posit for the sake of conversation that the "new" electorate, showing itself strongly in presidential years, gives the Democratic party a dominant, though of course not total, hold on White House for the next generation.

The "new" electorate is going to give the dims a lock on the WH forever if the movement to have states give all their electoral votes to the candidate who wins the popular vote succeeds. The large population centers are in the large cities, and they are all dim strongholds. They also are more likely places where election fraud can take place.

From the article:
[[ the GOP's fate as an increasingly demographically narrow, white-identified party finally comes home to roost. But what if it's not quite like that? ]]

Hmmmm.... lemmmmeeeeseeee here...

Do not "whites" still represent about 72-74% of the demographics of American citizens, perhaps even more?

How is 74% "demographically narrow"?

I've written before how the Republicans would have won the presidency in both 2008 and 2012 -- if only they had won roughly 5-8% more -of the white vote- in certain, critical swing states.

If whites were to begin voting "as a bloc" -- as they do in the deep south TODAY -- they would represent a political demographic force that "minorities" could not hope to defeat for at least two more generations, or longer.

The key to Republicans winning important elections in key battleground states is NOT to "woo the minority votes", but to court the -white- ones.

Actually, I think two terms of Obama has done more to awaken the "sleeping Euros" to the reality of "identity politics" and how it can be used -- MUST be used -- to protect tradtional American culture and perhaps the American form of republican government (that's with a small "r") as well.

The older whites seem to understand this. Of course, the Gramscian model of "socialism spread through the schools" has done its work on a couple of generations of young Euros already. Their minds are mush...
