With rare exception (e.g., DeMint, Issa, Coburn), politicians have a craving to be loved by the MSM. However, unlike their Dem colleagues, GOP politicians are not loved by the MSM, except when they espouse lefty ideas, as so often McCain, Hatch, McConnell & Graham do. Weak GOP politicians will vote for the most abominable legislation and sacrifice basic principles of sound fiscal practice and liberty in the name of bi-partisanship. So, so long as politicians – and especially GOP politicians – see the goal of any legislation is to claim “bi-partisanship,” as opposed to achieving some genuine, lasting benefit for the taxpayers, we are doomed.
