Dick Armey, former Republican House Majority Leader:

“Dobson and his gang of thugs are real nasty bullies.”

Charles Barkley, former NBA star:

“I was a Republican until they lost their minds.”

And 9 Kansans who were formerly Republicans,

… including Mark Parkinson, the former state G.O.P. chairman, are now running for state office as Democrats. Why did Mr. Parkinson change parties? Because he “got tired of the theological debate over whether Charles Darwin was right.”
