Sadly, it takes a liberalMatt Yglesias, one of the most consistently interesting lefty-liberal bloggers, over at The Atlantic now—to diagnose the repulsive symptoms of a sold-out GOP in its death-throes:

“Marc Ambinder’s report on how John McCain hopes to revive his dying presidential campaign by giving a speech in which he ‘will steel his audience to prepare for a ‘Long War’’ is a reminder of why McCain and Rudy Giuliani are both so dangerous. They both rely on mindless warmongering as their only hope of securing the nomination. The contract they’re making with the GOP base is ‘you may not like where I stand on X or Y, but at least I’ll go to war with Iran.’ Romney’s stated views on foreign policy are no less idiotic than his rivals’ but one can at least imagine him flip-flopping away from them.”
