The myth of the "Independent Republican"
Genuine Republican independence in the Congress is a myth. It doesn't exist. They have spent the last five years as a pitifully obsequious appedange to the Bush agenda.Read the post, he has some great examples in the UPDATE section of key votes where the Republicans totally toed the Bush line. The Democratic attack machine (which as far as I can tell right now is the blogs, Doonesbury, and two shows on Comedy Central) has got to start slamming McCain and his ilk. And what better way to do so than showing what a bunch of Bush-lackeys they are.
In the future, I hope chilren will ask, "Mommy, Daddy, what did you do to fight the bad Bush people?" And I hope we have good answers.
