Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Ann Coulter and many others in the conservative media have been attacking Senator McCain relentlessly, assailing him as a liberal and referring to him as "Juan McCain." Limbaugh has claimed that a McCain (or Huckabee) nomination would "destroy the Republican Party."
