Fourteen To One
By: Mark W Adams

This from Memeorandum, according to the political junkie, quasi-insider outlet, The Hill, but notably not from the Associated Press (which gets picked up by everybody, everywhere) who sought out and found the one and only Democratic Congressman in all of the hinterlands of Oklahoma who won't endorse, but will still vote for Barack Obama at the convention and in November:
At least 14 Republican members of Congress have refused to endorse or
publicly support Sen. John McCain for president, and more than a dozen
others declined to answer whether they back the Arizona senator.
Be it the war, or the economy, they won't get behind their nominee for a variety of reasons "including campaign finance reform, earmarks, immigration, healthcare, taxes and energy" as well. Some are bitter about him being one of the other "gang of fourteen" that struck a no-filibuster deal with the Democrats.

We've come a long way from the enforced hegemony policed by the likes of Tom DeLay as the GOP coalition fractures more and more each day while the Democratic Party is moving in the right direction and coalescing towards the future.

But you wouldn't know that if you didn't read blogs or keep track of things via the InterTubez and only relied on AP, the Town Crier of the Versailles Village on the Potomac, because their narrative doesn't fit with the idea that Saint John McCain is here to preserve the Great White Way's same old song and dance. Just keep in mind, it's all theater.
