Begala: GOP 'Neanderthals Fighting with Cro-Magnons'
Democratic strategist Paul Begala, appearing on CNN's State of the Union, called the current power struggle within the GOP “Neanderthals fighting with Cro-Magnons.”
Begala gloated, "I checked, party identification — the percentage of Americans who call themselves Republicans — all-time low, lower than Watergate, only 21 percent say that they’re Republicans today. That’s a catastrophe."
"Usually when you become more extreme," he continued, "more left in my party, more right in the Republicans’ — you at least get some cohesion. Here you have a much more conservative party than 20 years ago and a much more fractured party."
Begala concluded, "The Neanderthals are fighting with Cro-Magnons, the neoliths hate the paleoliths. It’s great. I love it as a Democrat."
