    Interesting piece. I've often thought the 'right' a odd and uncomfortable coalition, but I never expected the nuttiness that calls itself right/conservative today. It is refreshing to see some on the right admitting the wackiness.

    Leaving the Right - The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan

    "It seems to me that now is a critical time for more people whose principles lie broadly on the center-right to do so - against the conservative degeneracy in front of us. Those who have taken such a stand - to one degree or other - demand respect."

    Little Green Footballs - Why I Parted Ways With The Right

    6. Support for anti-government lunacy (see: tea parties, militias, Fox News, Glenn Beck, etc.)

    10. Hatred for President Obama that goes far beyond simply criticizing his policies, into racism, hate speech, and bizarre conspiracy theories (see: witch doctor pictures, tea parties, Birthers, Michelle Malkin, Fox News, World Net Daily, Newsmax, and every other right wing source)

    Two are enough, see others in link.

    The Right has been neutered so you needn't concern yourself with them. Now Americans have to come to grips with the fascist liberals that are in power, but they still have a huge cult following. They will be America's downfall if Americans don't wake up soon.

    is anyone surprised midcan uses a loon to support his hate of the right? and the guy isn't really leaving the right at all....his views of the right are twisted and wrong.

    ^ that is plain lie, the right doesn't hold that as a core value....

    ^also a lie

    i could go on, but the point is, this is so wrong he makes obama look right

    Just when I thought your piddling responses couldn't get any more inane or vapid, you lower the bar to the point that we need to dig a hole for it. :lol:

    Curious how no one on the right can seriously address the issues raised by Sullivan and Charles Johnson? What does that say about the right given Sullivan's influence.

    "Charles Johnson is absolutely right in my view to get off that wagon for the reasons [he] has stated. Read his testament. It is full of emotion, but also of honesty." AS

    you lost me at Racism.

    but then again.. you fail to realize that the Left Criticized and made out Bush to be the worst guy ever.. and i mean ever..

    So no need to cry about people talking crap about Obama..
