Republican, thy name is Mud

Republicans of a featherFrom Politico: In order to win the general election this fall McCain will have to sort of pretend not to be a Republican. That’s going to be particularly exhausting since he’s been spending so much time pretending he never considered not being one.

Things are so bad that many people don’t even want to call themselves Republicans. The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press has found the lowest percentage of self-described Republicans in 16 years of polling.

Sounds a bit like the country is considering coming to its senses, doesn’t it?

    It sounds like the same as people here didn’t want to admit to be Conservative Party voters, until recently anyway. I think it may take at least 1 administration before the stain of this Republican party is scrubbed clean but i can’t see the Bush name ever being cleansed.
