If the Republicans shut down...

...the federal government and default on the nation's debt they may end up suffering consequences similar to the Democratic Party following the Civil War. It took almost a hundred years, until 1964, for a candidate from the Old Confederacy, Lyndon Johnson, to get elected president. (And he was the progressive in the race.)

So after all the dust settles in a few weeks, will the GOP forever remember this as the "Second Lost Cause"?
