    About 90% of them.

    Gimmie an honest stand-up lefty like Harold Ford jr. or Russ Feingold any day over squishy sellouts like Juan McQuisling or the Huckster.

    I think Rhinoism is in the eye of the beholder. Also, they have political realities that many of us can't appreciate.

    Arnold is a good example. He has to deal with what he finds in Sacramento. It aint easy.

    Harold Ford Jr? Sorry Dude, but while he was running for the Senate here he was bending over backwards to try to show how conservative he was. He's been busily trying to change his spots to be liberal enough for New York. Not much stand up about him.

    Well, my bad on perception.

    Still, anyways, Russ is a stand-up lefty who is almost impossible to hate, just because he's damned honest about who he is.

    My Grandfather was an honest politician. He was re-elected for four terms and was well-loved by everybody who knew him. He was called upon all the time by the public. He had to give it all up when his knees went bad on him. Oh, he was the county dog catcher.:lol:

    Pretty much.

    I like Jason Lewis' analogy best: They're playing between the 40-yard lines.

    So when did the Republican Party "die"

    My dad was a die hard True Blue Republican, and was even a voting delegate here in Indiana for the Party. It seems like now I don't know the difference between a Republican, a Libertarian and now the new party called the Tea Party.
