Alabama's U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby gave Sen. Jim DeMint a verbal lashing after DeMint spoke out against McCain and the Republican Party again on Friday, November 14, in Myrtle Beach.

CNN writes in part:
Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby scolded fellow Republican Sen. Jim DeMint Monday over his recent criticisms of John McCain.

"I think my friend Sen. Jim DeMint should keep this stuff in the caucus and not be out beating up on fellow republicans," he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

DeMint also made similar criticisms before the November 4 election.

It's more signs that there's a battle over which way the Republican Party should head: The McCain or Palin road?
