Some repuke radio host says the GOP has become too hateful even for him:
For me, the Party is over," writes Michael Smerconish, who is leaving the party he belonged to for 30 years and becoming an independent.
"The national GOP is a party of exclusion and litmus tests, dominated on social issues by the religious right, with zero discernible outreach by the national party to anyone who doesn't fit neatly within its parameters. Instead, the GOP has extended itself to its fringe while throwing under the bus long-standing members like NY Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava, a McCain-Palin supporter in 2008 who told me she voted with her Republican leadership 90 percent of the time before running for Congress last fall…
"Collegiality is nonexistent today, and any outreach across an aisle is castigated as weakness by the talking heads who constantly stir a pot of discontent.“
Good for you. But Rush Limbaugh will still make fun of you and call for your doom.
