As if we needed someone to tell us this: Lincoln Chafee has left the Republican Party:
Former Sen. Lincoln Chafee said he has left the Republican Party because the national GOP has drifted too far from him on critical issues, including the war in Iraq, the economy and the environment.
Err… the GOP has drifted too far away from him? Isn’t that like saying that the Titanic drifted far away from Australia? Buddy, you were never close to GOP values to begin with!
At least he is out of the closet. If only RINOs #2-10 would follow suit.
