It might be a kamikaze mission, but the Club for Growth ought to support primary challengers against some of these go-along Republicans. What's the point of voting Republican if they're not going to fight? If the NRSC is looking for a fund-raising idea, maybe they can sell Republican doormats.

- Orrin Hatch (UT)
- John Ensign (NV)
- Olympia Snowe (ME)
- Mike Crapo (ID)
- John Cornyn (TX)
