pretty sure the opposite of 'peas in a pod' is 'bees in a bod'

There are no real majorities, only pluralities and coalitions.

If You're Surprised By The Election Results, You're The Reason You Lost, Or: A Plea For Useful Republicans Wow. Comparing Republican's confidence before Romney's loss to the Democrat's realism before Kerry' loss in 2004 is super telling. This is some of why modern mainstream conservatism is terrible: the Republicans have become the party of "if the facts don't match the theory, change the facts." A great thoughtful piece by what sounds like a true moderate.
One thing I've learned (by being even faintly aware of politics over 20 years): any talk of any "perpetual political majority" is foolish.
I like the gay friendly patter by Chuck Berry in "My Ding-A-Ling". Also the faint English accents of the crowd in the chorus.
Fox News and Rush Limbaugh don't actually care about the GOP. They really don't. They are in the business of terrifying aging white people for money.
