Schmidt Says He Helped Turn GOP Into a 'Freak Show'

Former McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt said that he has a "deep regret" for helping to create a "freak show" wing of the Republican party, Politico reports.

Said Schmidt: "For the last couple of years, we've had this wing of the party running roughshod over the rest of the party. Tossing out terms like RINO saying we're going to purge, you know, the moderates out of the party. We've lost five U.S. Senate seats over the last two election cycles. And fundamentally we need Republicans, whether they're running for president, whether they're in the leadership of the Congress, to stand up against a lot of this asininity."
