Apparently mouthpiece for the GOP, Sean Hannity, has left the party and become an independent.

As I've written countless times before, it's difficult to recall when the Republican Party was as far to the right as it has been during the Bush/Cheney era. Yet I guess for many zealots in the party, the dramatic rightward shift still comes up short.

Hannity is not the only extreme believer with harsh words for his once beloved party and with any luck this trend will continue, splintering a lame-duck party that has long grown diseased, corrupt and bereft of any competence. With it, power will dissipate and many politicians will do anything but be associated with such a shameful organization. Quite a far cry from Karl Rove's dream for a permanent Republican majority in DC.
