War (Party), What Is It Good For?

May the Republicans perish forever. May the vultures gobble their entrails. May their name be blotted out. In short, may they lose their shirts in November.

Yes, I’m disillusioned with the GOP. It was bad enough when I thought they were unprincipled. Now, however, it’s worse, because they do have a principle after all: war. ~Joseph Sobran

If Jim Geraghty’s Voting to Kill is right about what motivates a lot of GOP voters these days, Republican voters would say, “You better believe it!”  For their sake, I hope that they continue to vote GOP in spite of Iraq, not because of it.
