Is Trump a cause or a symptom, though? John Boehner is an evil little shit but he's a lot more competent than Paul Ryan. The argument of the article isn't purely that the Republicans have been driving out competence, but it's certainly a factor. If they've created an environment where Michelle Bachmann does well and John Boehner does poorly, they've created an environment where competence is not an asset.
