7. I don't even feel a twinge of sorrow for McCain or the GOP

They embraced and invited the loonies into their party so that they could completely obstruct the second half of President's first term and help ensure that there wouldn't be a second term. While the second part of their plan didn't turn out like they hoped, the first part of the plan is succeeding on into this year but Republicans are paying a terrible political price for keeping the loonies around and feeding them with bogus and ominous conspiracy theories about what might have happened in Benghazi, as well as inventing fake groups in order to sink nominations (i.e. Hagel). Unfortunately, despite the fact that the teabagger loons are clearly unhealthy for the GOP, not to mention the country and our system of government, the GOP still (largely) seems unwilling and/or unable to simply get rid of them, mostly, I suspect, to maintain whatever electoral viability they have left outside of the South and some Western states. Just wake me up when the nightmare is over!
