Can You Hear the Derisive Laughter?

It's hard to imagine who in the world Chuck Hagel thinks would vote for him, as he muses running for President as an indepenent.

Clearly the most dislikable nominal Republican in the Senate since the departure of Lincoln Chafee, there's hardly a member of the GOP who would even consider a Hagel candidacy.

Then again, he has also said that he won't leave the party -- that it should simply change to conform more closely with his own beliefs (it's a testament to the power of self-delusion for Hagel to think he has enough of a constituency to convince anyone of anything . . .)

Ultimately, there's no way Hagel will fly the GOP coop -- probably because he realizes that his talk of being an independent might, actually, alienate the long-suffering Nebraska Republicans who have foisted this senatorial mistake on us all. Well, we can hope. Primary challenge, anyone?

Please, please Hagel . . . leave the Party as quickly as possible and permanently join your leftist buddies. This incompetent dolt never ceases to amaze me.

Hagel running for president? Look up chutzpah in the dictionary and you'll see his picture. This is the kind of Republican you get when the leadership allows the party to stray to far from its ideological roots. Yea shall reap what yea sow.
