Republicans are Starting to Self-Destruct

Mad-Dog McCain is leading the pack in this "feed-on-ourselves" frenzy, and it looks to me as if John Stewart is writing McCain's material for him:

Republican John McCain accused presidential rival Mitt Romney of flip-flopping on immigration Monday and said with sarcasm: "Maybe his solution will be to get out his small varmint gun and drive those Guatemalans off his lawn.''

McCain also said he was disappointed in potential candidate Fred Thompson for opposing immigration legislation the Arizona senator is co-sponsoring.

The immigration spat comes as the GOP race turns increasingly contentious and as Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, shows signs of gaining steam in Iowa and New Hampshire while Thompson lays the groundwork for what increasingly appears to be his own White House bid.

What a great line - "Maybe his solution will be to get out his small varmint gun and drive those Guatemalans off his lawn." I'm jealous.

Jeff Blogworthy:

That's a hilarious line, I'll give McCain that. But he's on the wrong side of the base on this issue like so many others. He's gone. Mitt Romney may get a boost out of the deal.

Most definitely. Romney's star is rising and McCain's boat is sinking, but I'll happily send $100 to McCain's campaign just to hear more great lines like that.

Paul Hamilton:

Romney cannot win. He's got too many contradictions in his background, and there are too many hardcore fundamentalists who will not vote for an LDS no matter what. Thompson will be their choice.

And if Thompson decides to not run (long shot I admit) that leaves Gingrich.

Maybe the Republicans should just cede the election now and save themselves a lot of anxiety....?

Paul Hamilton:

Yeah, I'd bet the mortgage that Thompson is running. Gingrich is the new Buchanan -- he's just doing it to stir up publicity for his books and lectures.
