Across the pond for news of GOP Civil War

Tim Shipman files Republican fears of historic Obama landslide unleash civil war for the future of the party for The Guardian from Durango. He also reports John McCain loses temper with defeatist aides as he vows to fight to the last. It is wise to wait until these elections are in the book yet I look forward to watching their blame game. The long knives will be coming out.

Conservatives so often believe only people and never their philosophy fail. They'll also have the economic meltdown as an excuse. The claims of media bias remain. They'll claim voter fraud as well handed them their defeat. I'll be interested if anyone can get Dubyah talking and also hope for investigations being able to get off the ground once the Reign of Error ends.

Generally, the flaw in their own people is seen as their being insufficiently conservative. The think tanks, shills, operatives, ... will of course remain funded and perhaps perform even more effectively while working from the outside. I predict they will fight back with a vengeance unlike even what we witnessed during the Clinton years. John Gunn
