GOP running against the GOP

Very weird dynamic, which is captured well in this snippet from Froomkin’s column today:

Here’s Democratic strategist Paul Begala on CNN last night: “It seems to me the purpose of this convention tonight is to help us all forget that for eight years George W. Bush has been running the White House; for six of the last eight years, the Republicans have run the House of Representatives; for five of the last eight years, they have run the Senate; and for all of the last eight years, they’ve run the Supreme Court. They’ve got seven of the nine justices were appointed by Republicans. So I think this is a terrific attempt…to try to shift away from the Republican record and try to sort of pretend they’re an alien force that somehow is going to come into Washington and change things.”
