The GOP keeps in the news via such smoke and mirrors.
Real differences do exist. eg: Arlen Spector, Barry Goldwater and Theodore Roosevelt were all three kicked out of the Republican party for not obeying the party leadership and, thinking for themselves.
Election time, the party faithful lockstep to the polls and pull the elephant lever, regardless of who is on the ballot.
Ron Paul repeatedly faked a third party candidacy to siphon off the protest vote and help the Republican candidate win. Dr. Paul always goes back to being a party hack after his fake 3rd party run. Republicans paid for Ralph Nader's campaign commercials. Shows whom he really worked for.
Ever notice, the media obsesses over what Republicans are doing, but Democrats are almost ignored, in comparison.
It's a dog and pony show, to divert attention from the important stuff the media does NOT mention.
