Glenn Beck, the conservative/libertarian radio host, announced today that he is no longer a member of the Republican Party. He joins his colleague at The Blaze, Dana Loesch, who has also left the GOP.

This is the change we can believe in. The eight years of Democratic rule are over and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is now in power. The first two bills of the GOP Senate are authorizing the Keystone XL pipeline and placing sanctions on Iran.
