Denial is the first stage of grief

The Republican party is folding in on itself, aided by their celebrity conservative contingency. Newsweek’s cover story this week was about how the far right wing is so repulsed by McCain that they would do anything (including Ann Coulter saying she would stump for Hillary Clinton if McCain is the candidate) to keep him from the White House.

Newsweek says “It seems possible that the conservative movement—the dominant force in American politics since the Reagan Revolution—has become so dogmatic that it might choose purity over victory.”

And purity’s poster boy is apparently the evolution-eschewing, Jesus-loving, Freebird-playing Huckaburger.

Good luck with that.

It does seem kinda odd that the Republican Party would turn against one of their own and support their own worst enemy. Then again, this "all-or-nothing" mentality is something they adopted ages ago.
