12. Are there any?

Romney, Flake, Collins are as close as they come these days, but they consistently lack the courage of their expressed convictions. Even McCain failed to live up to his own hype—although I’ll always remember the strength of his spine when he knew death was coming.

Before today there was John Danforth of Missouri, who like Collins today, always said the right sounding things, and then would fold like a garage sale card table.

I wonder if Lincoln was the only and last Republican patriot.
