As much as I liked Reagan, letting the bible-thumpers was a huge--dare I say huuuuuggggeeee?--mistake. I was a registered Republican until about 20 years ago. Like many other people in the country, I'm now an independent. I have no regrets, but I'm glad I 'got out' when I did. Doubly glad now! You have no idea!!
I heard on the news this morning that a Virginia pol has recently changed his affiliation from GOP to independent because of the very things we're discussing.
But did the news station's website have a link? Nooooo. They're in full OMG-it's-snowing-we're-all-gonna-die!!! mode. Keeping people informed is one thing, panicking is another.

ETA: Now I've got that Sammy Davis Jr song on my mind--thanks! NOT!!
