The Detox Party: Billmon Poetry

You have to admit, Billmon's suggestion over at Whiskey Bar, that the Republicans rebrand themselves as the Detox Party, has a certain ring to it:
If, by some fluke, the Democrats were to recapture the White House, they would be well advised to go after the Rovian machine in roughly the same manner that the Russian government went after the old Communist Party after the failed '91 coup. Personally, if it were up to me, I would declare the GOP an illegal organization (as the CPUSSR was) and let honest Republicans go regroup under a new, hopefully non-criminalized brand name -- like, say, the Detox Party.
