Three good things Donald Trump has done for the Republican Party

Here are three good things Donald Trump has done for the Republican Party, and this is a non-ironic list:

  1. He has broken the decades-long stranglehold Christian theocrats have had over the party.
  2. He has halted, at least temporarily, the mindless genuflecting of its policy professionals to the Tax Cut Gods.
  3. He has exposed the monochrome whiteness of the party which in turn has exposed its racism.

The fact his candidacy also has distorted the party beyond recognition and turned it into a fringe, minority opposition group of racists, fascists, xenophobes, Know Nothings, misogynists and other anti-American malcontents will have wait for another blog post.
