This bullshit, astroturf, keep-"compromising"-ever-Rightward farce?
Oh Hell no.
From Newsweek, Marky Mark McKinnon speaks out on the real villains who have forced -- forced! -- Hero Centrists like him to buy time-shares in Glenn Beck's ass-crack.

I mean, ever since the Republican Base ducked out on paying the tab for a generation of being loudly and catastrophically wrong about everything by putting on funny hats, screaming about liberty and calling themselves "The Tea Party", their sleazy Centrist enablers have been seething with jealously.

Preferably a meal ticket under a banner that -- like "Tea Party -- wouldn't keep bringing up their horribly inconvenient past as the sleazy, enabling hustlers.
Hey, kids! I have an idea! Lets peel those the icky, damning labels off of everything and -- presto! -- there is magically no longer any difference between rat poison and apple sauce!

Because The Dude abides.
