The pundits can say what they want, but I don't think the GOP is stupid enough to want to cement itself as a minority party going forward.
I would agree with you, if the GOP had only one head. But the GOP is a group of other groups and if the irrationals have more power than the rationals one, we are much likely to see the GOP going even deeper into it's problem insted of trying to get out of it.

In more important news, Puerto Rico has voted to become a state.

And he wrote that in the way to the stage. It's a pretty short speech LOL.

Despite how late it was Romney gave a pretty good speech. Too bad the GOP is ready throw him "under bus" and continue to split the country.

So on July 4, 2013, the United States will get a 51st state? Happy 237th birthday! We get a new flag after 54 years.

I'm not familiar with the procedures for statehood, but what happens now? Do we have to vote on it or something?

After Puerto Rico frames a Constitution, The House and Senate have to approve it. Although with this congress it might get contentious.

Yup, but he took a large majority of the latino and black vote, and a very healthy chunk of the young and women voters as well.

AND? is that somehow racists?

Lets say hypothetically Romney only got 20% of the black vote?

Who are more racist? Whites or Blacks?

Yeah, I knew about those. My 'hmm' was about how many of those people just refuse to have a black president? It has to be a significant percentage.

If it becomes a offical state by then, Puerto Rico would add a few more electoral votes to the list come 2016. 5 seats in the House and 2 Senators.

This should help mollify the problem of a Tied electoral college. But 5 House seats? Really?
