    There may be one more fight left in them.  Buchanan might be able to get his followers behind Paul, though I'm not sure.  Antiwar.com seems to be doing their best along that line.  If they can break the eveangellical right's stranglehold, then there might be hope for the more traditional wing of the Repubs, and we might see them get away from the maniacs they have rallied around now.

    Trust no organizaton bigger than two, and even those are suspect!

      joyful I would be if such a thing were to happen. Of course the so-called christians supporting the torture of humans may already be all the way down that slippery slope, with too much of a risk of personal shame should they attempt to turn around. Such an uprising would have to be a religious one, but the evangelicals supporting the destruction of muslims are no doubt a lost cause.

        another scandal like Foley and the related coverup is very likely to drive away a slice of the base. They were upset over it last Fall, maybe as much as a quarter of the commenters on some of the conservative sites were unhappy about it as an abuse of power and position, although an anti-gay bias figured in as well.

        And there's definite unhappyness at the last several months' revelations. Conservatives that were happy to see Bush in are feeling uneasy about the AG and politicizing of law enforcement. Get more exposure of the no-bid contracts and similar that have occurred under Bush and another busload will defect.

        Too bad so many at dkos seem to buy into Bush's "either you're with us or against us" slogan, and treat everyone who doesn't 100% buy into whatever their progressive goals are as enemies.
