We need more McCains so we can start replacing them without turning over majority control to the other side.
I don't see how that will work. The McCains don't care about America at all - only about getting attention and perks for themselves. They hold the party back with their power to change sides (like Jeffords - how many concessions were made to keep him happy before he actually jumped ship?) held over the leaders' heads.
Unless you mean we need very sick Republican Senators who may die in office and can then be replaced with a conservative by the party.
Sheesh. Forget I said it. I was just responding to someone's absurdity with an equally absurd comment. My opinion is that we need to retake Republican control of the Senate. It ain't that complicated. Now you can take my opinion and add a buck seventy-five and you still may be short for a cup of coffee. Besides, I doubt there are any McCain clones out there. Thanks, Jim
Valarie, it does make a big difference if someone has a R beside their name. The Senate AND the House do their major business in committees. If you look at the times the GOP holds the majority and you look at who chairs those committees, you will find very few RINOs in that position but having that R by their name enables the conservatives to chair the committees. The RINOs serve a purpose in that it helps avoid what we just saw on the Judicial crucifixion.
