Republicans and Democrats, possibly not parallel

My recent post about disillusioned Republicans got some comments about being angry at Democrats, too.

The thing is, I've never seen anything like that recent spate of "my party has betrayed me" books in my life. I think there was something of the sort with the Communist party in the US, but those are the only examples I've got. Other suggestions?

The difference I'm seeing between what's going on the Republican party and ordinary partisanship (or even ordinary partisan rage) is the belief that a party one trusted isn't just wrong, it's gone mad.
