I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Who Can Blame Him?

Senator John Warner has made some noise but always played the part of a Bush sycophant in the end. But you could tell he didn't like it and will leave office realizing what a catastrophe George W. Bush has been for the US and the world. So it comes as little surprise that he's calling it quits.
Warner's departure puts GOP in bigger bind
WASHINGTON (CNN) – Senator John Warner announced Friday that he will retire after his current term expires and will not run for re-election in 2008. The five term senior senator from Virginia was first elected to his seat in 1978.

The announcement of the 80-year-old Warner’s retirement puts Senate Republicans in a bigger bind as they try to recapture the chamber from the Democrats in next year’s election. Virginia was once a solid red state, but Democrats have won most of the major state wide elections in recent years.
Yes indeed, this is bad news for the Republicans. Warner knows that and perhaps he realizes the Republican Party needs a big loss in 2008 so that it will be forced to reinvent itself.
