There is no mystery surrounding the liberal leanings of ridiculous Republican senators such as Maine's twisted sisters. Most now know that there are certain Republican Senators who will be more comfortable leaning left than right on too many occasions, perhaps for no other reason than to garner the praise of the liberal media and the powerful Dem politicians. John McCain, when not in campaign mode, his pet Goober, Dick Lugar, and perhaps Scotty "The Body" Brown (any professional wrestling fans from the 80s out there?) fall into this category. I say perhaps with regard to the pretty boy from Taxachussets because there is a strong indication that he will fall more in line with the Maine malignancies.
There is also little mystery about the existence of a candidate to replace former Dem who would not admit his true affiliation, Arlen Specter as the third leg of the dependable RINO stool (or unofficial Democrat Caucus). Cap and Traitor Mike Castle of Delaware hopes to defeat decent candidate Christine O'Donnell to join fellow Cap and Traitor Mark Kirk in attempting to obtain the coveted "third leg" status. Perhaps if Castle and Kirk both win, despite their grotesque flaws as candidates and as human beings,they can engage in a head to head battle for the title.
So why then, is the case of the Senate Repubes curious given this lack of mystery? I'm glad I asked. The small number of full or part time Repube enemies of common sense and liberty are pretty well known. The curious part is the motivation of other members of the Republican caucus. The mystery, to me, is what is their ultimate goal? Is politics what they practice in order to achieve their goals or is politics the goal?
