As the bloody quagmire in Iraq slogs along a number of GOP members of congress have finally decided to buck Bush's "war and obedience" agenda. Sen. John Warner has proposed a resolution against the White House's troop surge plan which will likely draw a number of GOP supporters. This has prompted a predictable response for the GOP faithful, who have attacked these rogue colleagues for "emboldening the terrorists", or something along this line that basically follows the script of the White House spin machine.
The inevitable failure in Iraq threatens to tear the Republican party apart, and will have a huge impact on its 2008 election prospects. As more and more Republicans try to save their own hides politically and abandon Bush's sinking ship, what will be the future of the Republican party? Will the dead-enders in the GOP be able to survive?
