The Breakup Of The Republican Party Has Begun
Many state Republican parties have a serious split between conservatives and moderates. However, the split in the Kansas GOP is particularly heated and nasty. Recently, this split became quite visible when former Kansas GOP chair, Mark Parkinson, ran on a ticket with a Democrat Lt. Governor.
... I've been too "Right" for the Republicans for many years now. That "illness" is spreading! G.W. Bush has taken the Republican Party so far Left that not many true conservatives want to remain anymore. Any "good" the President has done in his term has occurred because his constituents were kicking him so hard to the right he had to go that way. The recent "Surge" is the latest example. Unfortunately, Bush has almost two years left. He can do a tremendous amount of damage in that time frame!
