New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd says "Conquistadora" Hillary Clinton will "finish off" Republicans in 2016.
The top rated columnist says that Republicans are getting weaker every presidential election cycle because of their refusal to change.
In the piece entitled "A Lost Civilization," she compares the end of the world prediction in 2012 by a Mayan prophecy to the self-destruction of the Republican Party.
She says, "The Mayans were right, as it turns out, when they predicted the world would end in 2012. It was just a select world: the G.O.P. universe of arrogant, uptight, entitled, bossy, retrogressive white guys.
"Just another vanishing tribe that fought the cultural and demographic tides of history."
She goes on to say the decline of the Republican party "will be traced to a stubborn refusal to adapt to a world where poor people and sick people and black people and brown people and female people and gay people count."
Dowd says President Obama's victory over Romney didn't stop on election night. She says Obama is still beating him.
"The G.O.P. put up a candidate that no one liked or understood and ran a campaign that no one liked or understood — a campaign animated by the idea that indolent, grasping serfs must be kept down, even if it meant creating barriers to letting them vote," she says.
Continuing her analogy, she ends saying, "But history will no doubt record that withering Republicans were finally wiped from the earth in 2016 when the relentless (and rested) Conquistadora Hillary marched in, General Bill on a horse behind her, and finished them off.”
