I would love for someone to explain to me how calling for a man with a 70% approval rating to leave the Republican Party — in favor of two ideologues supported by only 30% and 37% of the population, respectively — is a winning electoral strategy:

The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey, released Monday, suggests that 70 percent have a favorable opinion of Powell, who was Secretary of State during President George W. Bush’s first term, and who served as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the Persian Gulf War.

Only 30 percent of those polled have a favorable view of Limbaugh, the popular conservative radio talk show host, with 53 percent saying they hold an unfavorable opinion.

In poll numbers released Thursday, 37 percent say they have a favorable opinion of Dick Cheney, with 55 percent indicating they hold an unfavorable view of the former vice president.

    This is Just another sign of the Republican Party coming apart at the seams. It would serve them right if Colin Powell went his own way, and formed his own party. But Mr. Powell most likely will not, because he has a history of serving his country, and his party, with honor. Unfortunately neither Cheney, nor Rush, have such a concept. They are much more interested either covering up the crimes committed by the Bush/Cheney administration or in making lots of money.
