DescriptionAfter the election of '08 it is clearer than ever that the Green Party of the U.S. (GPUS) now lies in the political graveyard. GPUS, R.I.P. Here we attempt a badly needed postmortem.

Full disclosure. In the summer of 2007 when I was newly elected to the GPUS National Committee as a representative from MA, I felt that the GPUS was indeed viable. In fact I responded then in CounterPunch to an article by Joshua Frank, warning that the GPUS was breathing its last. In retrospect, he was a far better diagnostician than I. And I squandered a lot of time searching for signs of longevity in the GPUS. I write this in part to save others from a similar, futile, very unappetizing and at times downright painful experience.
