She’s threatening to do to the Republican Party what netroots wants to do to the Democratic Party. Storm their citadels and then take over.
Republican Party insiders are determined to stop her. It’s not just that she’s unelectable, she’s also a direct threat to their power base, influence, and money stream.
So why has she been much more successful at this than netroots has on their end of the spectrum?
GOP elites now appear determined to destroy her, which should be a cautionary note to netroots, should they ever pose a similar threat to Democratic elites.
