And, Lutz? Maybe he, unlike a lot of people, remember the disaster that the actual Ken Starr caused when he tried that. I trust I don't have to remind you the costly mess he caused that pretty much ruined the GOP's reputation for a while, do I?

Unless an article is obviously ridiculous you can bring it up, just don't spend posts talking about the sources themselves and nothing else.

The DoJ apparently has been investigating a NYT Reporter as well. So that makes AP, Fox, and NY Times, I wonder how many others have been investigated. The White House really needs to start cleaning house at the DOJ beginning with Holder and continuing on with practically anyone else involved in this or connected to Holder.
I gotta agree with Bob here.
In fact, seeing as he was a moderate Republican, today's GOP wouldn't like him much either. To them, anyone who isn't a staunch conservative is a RINO who isn't worth their time. That's why Bachmann and Santorum (woefuly incompetant, but incredibly conservative) were popular among the GOP in Iowa, Bachmann even winning the Straw Poll.
Seriously, here's someone who explains it:
Also I would add in just off the top of my head Rep. Jason Altmire in PA-12 and Rep. Tim Holden who were primaried out like Libermann
Lindsey Graham? The one who has been given an A rating by the NRA and a B rating by the Gun Owners of America, indicating a strong pro-gun stance? Who has also received a rating of 0% from the Human Rights Campaign, a lobby group which promotes LGBT rights in the United States, in each reporting period from 1995–2008, with the exception of 1999, when he received a rating of 9%? Who also voted against same-sex adoptions? Who supports DOMA?
I don't think he's very moderate.
He also took on Rand Paul during the Drone debate, and has been seen as a more moderate ally of the President as noted by how he shared dinner with the President while Rand Paul was holding the Drone Speech.
As for Graham, On The Issues labels him a hard core conservative. He's more liberal than most other Republicans in the Senate, but I wouldn't go as far as to call him a moderate.

Yeah, McCain is a moderate, and it seems his days in the GOP may be numbered. There are already signs that his colleges don't like him much anymore.
Heck, I used to admire him but he made a LOT of mistakes that caused me to stop admiring him. (His choice of VP wasn't the only reason I stopped respecting him, but believe me, that was a big part of it.)
The House Judiciary Committee has begun to investigate Holder for perjury.

Christie doesn't have a chance in 2016, he's considered a RINO and polling shows him to be hated within the Republican party. He's very far from being a mainstream Republican. Look at Jon Huntsman, he was very, very conservative, but he was destroyed in 2012 for being too moderate.But furthermore his accusation that he would be ran out of the party these days looks pretty pathetic when you have Chris Christie one of the suggested candidates for 2016 playing carnival games with Barack Obama.

Mind you however I am not talking about his chances or lack there of, I am speaking about how absurd it is of Dole to say that he would be kicked out of the party for his moderate views when the party has elected two moderates in the past two cycles, and looks to have another moderate try for a third nomination.
