No crap.

Alternately titled: "Why I love Sen. Jim DeMint":

South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint on Friday became one of the first high-profile Republicans to publicly criticize John McCain following his electoral defeat, blaming the Arizona senator for betraying conservative principles in his quest for the White House.

[...]

"McCain, who is proponent of campaign finance reform that weakened party organizations and basically put George Soros in the driver's seat," DeMint said. "His proposal for amnesty for illegals. His support of global warming, cap-and-trade programs that will put another burden on our economy. And of course, his embrace of the bailout right before the election was probably the nail in our coffin this last election. And he has been an opponent of drilling in ANWR, at a time when energy is so important. It really didn't fit the label, but he was our package."
But lest we forget, this is the model for winning elections, so we've been told.  As we move forward, we need to ignore the fact that a squishy moderate nearly got served up a Mondale-sized landslide defeat and continue nominating squishy moderates.  We need more strong, principled leaders like David Brooks and Christie Todd Whitman.
