  •  I agree, they have too much of a cozy (0+ / 0-)

    familiarity and like-mindedness with the republican leadership.
       There are occasional liberals who fantasize about a far-right, far-left coalition built around some particular topic, like too big to fail bank reform, "Audit the Fed!" + "Warren for Senate!" = ...nirvana? Or "No US drones over Pakistan!" + "No NATO drones over the US!" = Yeah, harmonic convergence!
       But not really. We don't trust their leaders, or their motives at all. And there is no tinfoil thick enough through which they may clearly see ...rational reality. The politican spectrum does not bend around and come full circle, it leads to the thick briars and underbrush on opposite sides of the road.
       So the hardcore evangelicals who hate their sinners of choice with every fiber of their ..."souls" have but one national party to return to. Which they will do, after sitting in a corner making strident demands, which may get them some legistative action on some issues, and will get them a lot of lip service.
       But remember all the while that there is not much of a splinter to the right of Huckster-bee for him to take along, and only the thoroughly disenchanted will split to begin with. Those who fervently see the neocons as the answer to their call to judge others will still cling, praying and screaming, to their faith in the T.P. republicans.
