Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele appeared to express agreement last week as a conservative radio host interviewing him trashed the leadership of the Republican Party and ripped Missouri Senate candidate Roy Blunt for having an affair with a tobacco lobbyist.
With Steele on the phone, conservative Missouri radio host Vincent David Jericho repeatedly disparaged key Republicans.
Midway through the interview, Jericho called the entire Republican leadership and House Minority Leader John Boehner (Ohio) in particular, "an absolute freaking joke."
"I'm not just some voice flapping in the wind," Jericho said. "I am speaking for hundreds of thousands if not millions of Americas who are feeling the same way. For God sakes, the Republican Party is supposed to stand for something. Why don't they stand up and lead. Because some of the leadership with Boehner and some of these other guys are a joke.

Later in the interview, when Jericho again set his sights on GOP officials, Steele again was agreeable. This time the target was former Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt and his father (and current Senate candidate) Roy Blunt (R-Mo.).

I'm a Libertarian. Both major parties suck eggs. The Repubs are falling apart, the Dems are freaking out, and I'm looking towards so new leadership in the future.
LOL..This definately opens the door, maybe a third party could walk through it!
