Time to Form a Third Party Over Obamacare

This was in today's morning mailbag from a friend: "The higher ups at Democrat World Domination, Inc. should be congratulated on planting Erickson. This investment could pay off substantially." He included a link to the following from Erick Erickson:

For several years, Republican establishment types and their allies in the press have mocked conservatives for wanting an all or nothing strategy. They’ve said we have to be willing to compromise. So Mike Lee proposes a plan to fund the government except for the discretionary funding for Obamacare. The reaction of GOP leaders? They only want to support a plan that fully repeals Obamacare.

....We inch ever closer to a third party as Republican Leaders commit suicide by lie.

The funniest part of this is Erickson's belief that defunding just the discretionary portion of Obamacare is a "compromise." In any case, I'm personally eager for the true believers in conservo-land to break off and start their own party. I'm sure they'll find that the American public is disgusted with the RINOs currently running the GOP and has just been waiting for an even more hardnosed version of the Republican Party they can vote for.
