More reaction to the GOP's mental breakdown:

Two-thirds of Republicans want Palin, the party's vice presidential nominee in 2008, to be "a major national political figure" in the future. ... Let me get this straight. The woman QUITS because of ETHICS complaints files against her by her CONSTITUENTS and that makes her MORE Presidential?

I knew the GOP was in bad shape but this is absolutely unbelievable.

Once your party is based on blind religiously-motivated faith, reality ceases to matter.
