When Jindal instructed the Republicans to reject "identity politics",
Jindal himself is rejecting thirty years of Reaganism. Reaganism was all about a subtler, gentler, carefully coded message of racism and classism. Conservative came to mean being classist, racist and intolerant of anything or anybody that isn't just like me. Then the Republicans used the meanest instincts of people to get them to vote against their own economic interest, creating a nation run by plutocrats.

I don't think the party base will change one iota.
