    The only thing more pleasant than watching the GOP dissolve onto extinction is knowing that they are doing it to themselves. Thanks for the laughs, clowns.

    While it is in the ballpark, to call it a civil war is also to dress it up somewhat.
    It really different groups of individuals who have only a name brand in common.
    The republican party when it functioned it functioned like an enterprise.
    It became a for profit advocacy group for which could be called Republican Inc.
    Usually something like this happens because of a power vacuum, but in this case they are fighting over the pattern and color of the stripes the right wing tiger is supposed to brandish.
    It is not a necessary fight really other than the obvious identity crisis.
    However, the real reason the republican part is in disarray is because Reaganomics failed and there is no way they as a party can distance themselves from it. The only way they can continue now is without Reaganomics. They are currently unable erect its museum and go on.

    22-years ago, I cast my first vote, voting mostly Republican. As the party started becoming more radical during the Raegan years with their Southern strategy, attracting a bigger share of regressive s rather than conservatives, I shifted in the middle. Last election, I did not even vote for a single GOP candidate, including local ones. People like me are moving away from this party. Like termites, the regressive s have eaten through this once great party. It is fast becoming a shadow of its past. Lincoln will so disappointed in the current GOP.

    Love this show! Please expand the show to one hour and allow the discussions to go more in depth. Great to watch the left and the right debate issues and make their case to American's who want more than softball questions, 30 second adds, and soundbites. Folks that are upset with the show must be losing the debates!

      You work for a "Top 5" bank, yet they don't offer healthcare coverage? C'mon man don't you have better things to do in life than lie on the Internet?

    Who can ever watch this silly program, if the host will not let their guests even answer the very questions they are asked?
