    Who was that republican guy from Connecticut or Vermont or wherever who got fed up with his party and became an independent several years ago? Maybe McCain will do the same thing.

    Conservative members of Arizona's GOP have complained that McCain has become too soft and too liberal on vital issues of serious importance to them. It is too bad that the maverick McCain wasn't this liberal back during the 2008 Presidential election when he chose a running mate.

    YourName2000 saidIt's like watching a snake eat its tail.

    I can't say it's too surprising: they've been parsing up America for so long, playing one side against the other, that it was really only a matter of time before they turned the knife on themselves.

    Meh.

    Every time I see McCain's name in the headlines or hear about him I think:
    When will you die?!

    All political parties fight internally. It`s much more vicious than anything between the groups; though, usually, they hide it quite well with loyalty and discipline.

    John Major, British Conservative prime minister 1992-7, spoke memorably of this fact of political life when he commented how he had to worry much more about those behind him in the House of Commons ie Conservatives, than he did those opposite ie Labour.

    In exceptional circumstances, like continued electoral defeat, this rigid discipline weakens and it all comes spilling out. But it was always there. The Republicans are in this state for the forseeable future and it makes a grim kind of entertainment for outsiders.

    Labour went through this in the 1980s when consistently defeated by Thatcher and the conservatives in general elections.

    I quietly ask that same question about the nation's premier NARROW MINDED, BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALL, James Dobson founder of Focus On The Family. That's the man who helped destroy the GOP.
