    Pat Buchanan made a comment on the Tweety show yesterday about McCain representing the Far Left of the Republican party.  

    Any real Republican moderates departed long ago.  Real conservatives are now leaving in droves as it has been abundantly revealed that there is nothing conservative in Republican stewardship of the government.  

    So who does that leave?  ChristoFascists and NeoImperialists.  Is McCain the left wing of the party, or is this there only a wingless Chickenhawk left?

      are called "Independents."

      •  Independents or independents? (0+ / 0-)

        There is an Independent American Party, a (Committee for a Unified) Independent Party, and various state Independence parties.

        My definition of independent (small i) is non-aligned or non-affiliated.

        I have always been and plan to remain a truly independent citizen voter.  As such, I refuse to be categorized or mischaracterized.

        If I missed your snark, I apologize, heh.  One gets thin-skinned when being constantly pressured, such as by the Democratic emphasis on good sites like dKos.

      Left wing of the GOP? With that voting record?

      McCain is more conservative that Dubya. Just about the only issue he's really left the conservative message behind on is election reform. Every other vote, every other position, that he's held can be clearly linked to ultra-conservatism.

      So what's Buchanan doing? He knows the GOP is in severe trouble, and needs to brand it's future leader as a different kind of republican ...

      •  He was for the (0+ / 0-)

        Senate version of the Patients Bill of Rights with Kennedy and Edwards.
        The anti-torture law also springs to mind.

        I mean, I agree in general with everyone on McCain, but we need to be able to develop counter-arguments to facts.

          why would the favoring an anti-torture law not be do-able from a conservative frame? we (the folks on the left) do not have solo claim to human rights issues, even tho it seems so at times ...
