Guess The Mystery Republican!

All the smart R's are jumping ship on W!

First it was George Will and William F. Buckley. Now a mystery Republican. I love a mystery!

Today Dana Milbank writes about a mystery Republican Senate candidate -- who was too scared to be identified by name -- speaking critically of his Party.

The candidate, immersed in one of the most competitive Senate races in the country, sat down to lunch yesterday with reporters at a Capitol Hill steakhouse and shared his views about this year's political currents.

On the Iraq war: "It didn't work. . . . We didn't prepare for the peace."
On the response to Hurricane Katrina: "A monumental failure of government."
On the national mood: "There's a palpable frustration right now in the country."

Well, it's time to play "Guess the Mystery Republican!"

By putting together the clues, let's see how close we can come to figuring out which Republican isn't afraid to speak the truth -- so long as it's not attributed to him.

I love this part.

The candidate "spoke of his party affiliation as though it were a congenital defect rather than a choice. ‘It's an impediment. It's a hurdle I have to overcome,’ he said. ‘I've got an 'R' here, a scarlet letter.’”
I like the "frech cuffs" or make that freedom cuffs I guess.

The smart money seems to be on this being Kean or Steele. Steele will be here on the 27th - somebody should ask him.
I don't know who it is but I love the fact that their loyalty to the party is ultimately going to be what takes them down with the ship


(cough, cough)

As per Atrios it's Michael Steele from MD.
You think this is anything but strategy? Does one have lunch with Dana Milbank and expect it to stay quiet?
Here are some links that I believe will be interested
Really amazing! Useful information. All the best.
