One-way bipartisanship

The Charleston County, South Carolina, Republican Party has censured Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for working with Democrats on a climate change bill, Roll Call reports.

What happened to Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment — “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican” — that used to be sacred to Republicans? What happened to Ronald Reagan’s big tent? It collapsed in New York’s 23rd Congressional District (thanks to a shove from Sarah Palin), costing Republicans a seat they’d held since the Civil War, and now it looks like its collapsing in South Carolina, with ultra-right-wing teabaggers targeting one of the most conservative members of the Senate for not being conservative enough.

It sure looks to me like Republicans are eating their own.
