The roll call of Republicans aghast at their own party grows. His defense of Sen. Lugar, whom I consider to be one of the best the GOP has ever had, is priceless.
Republican John Danforth, who served as a senator from Missouri for nearly 20 years and later as George W. Bush’s ambassador the United Nations, is not happy with the slate of Republican presidential candidates. “I’ve been watching some of these Republican debates and they’re just terrible. Terrible,” he told KTRS in St. Louis yesterday. “It’s embarrassing for me as a Republican to watch this stuff,” he added, calling out audiences for applauding the candidates’ morbid boastings. [More]If the GOP sinks to nominating Gingrich, it could mark the low water point, IMHO.
