How and why evangelicals persist, what motivates their zealotry and what they would do with power if they got it—these are the “What-ifs” Frederic C. Rich asks through his characters and a counterfactual storyline that takes readers from a key historical tipping point—the election and subsequent death of John McCain in 2008—through plausible plot twists and fictional conflicts that remain deeply rooted in the very real people, politics and ideologies that even today are significant forces in American life.

Lying has certainly come a long way in the new century. Those of us us born in the 1900′s can still remember a time when being caught publicly lying could bring down a President (Nixon), or at the very least, get one impeached (Clinton). In those sepia-toned days, lying was a content-neutral affront; Barry Goldwater was just as justifiably incensed at being lied to by Nixon as Al Gore was at being lied to by Clinton, despite the rather gigantic difference between the significance of their respective lies.
But something odd happened when George W. Bush entered office.

A joint statement by Senators John McCain, Kelly Ayotte, Lindsey Graham, and Representative Peter King calls for a man accused of participating in the Boston Marathon Bombing, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, to be charged and handled as an enemy combatant and outside the constitution despite Tsarnaev being a U.S. citizen.

During the press conference after Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was arrested and taken to a hospital seriously injured, FBI Special Agent in Charge Rick Deslauriers told reporters the communities of Boston, Cambridge, Watertown and other cities could “breathe a sigh of relief knowing” there was “no longer a threat to our personal safety and to our communities.” Boston Police Department Commissioner Ed Davis also stated, “I think based upon our investigation at this point in time, the citizens of the city Boston and this area can be confident that the threat has been removed.”

What started as an Obama nominee filibuster has split the Republican Party in two. The principal combatants being Senator John McCain representing the imperialist faction and Senator Rand Paul representing the libertarian faction. The battle could determine the future of American foreign policy and civil liberties.
The dispute got personal with Senator McCain calling Senator Paul a member of the “wacko birds caucus.” And it appears Senator Paul used his time at CPAC yesterday to fire back.
