"Principled" Republicans?

There's something singularly perverse about Republicans who won't vote for Senator McCain because they differ with him on one or two issues, yet will change party affiliation to Democrat on primary election day (that's not done in most states--one must have registered with their "chosen" party well-ahead of the actual polling date, in order to vote in the primary) just to sway the opposition party's primary results--by voting for a communist.

There's also something extraordinarily stupid about a state where no mechanism is in place to prevent such an act.
The Republican party has been fractious and self-defeating for many years, but yesterday's outrage takes the cake. Congratulations!
R.I.P., G.O.P!
