Republicans are Coming Apart at the Seams

Recently I linked to some snide and derogatory comments about Newt Gingrich and Dennis Hastert as were reported from an Illinois primary battle, and over the weekend at least four additional articles appeared in the nation's newspapers, which detailed more of the rift between ideologically-pure Republican conservatives and their more moderate brethren in races going all the way down to judgeship.

What's odd is that in South Carolina, Sen. Lindsey Graham has been censured or rebuked by several county organizations, even though he has a lifetime rating of 90% from the American Conservative Union.

And what's somewhat ironic is that all of the articles mention the Tea Party protesters and 912 Project members as instigators of this insurrection, but right now, I'd say the "leaders" of these groups and two of the biggest names in the Republican Party are Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, both of whom have backed or expressed a willingness to consider third-party candidates.

In other words, RINOs are under attack from Republicans-in-name-only.
Update: Lindsey Graham has been censured again (1/5/2010)
