These People Call Themselves “Conservative”

Ugh, reading this smug article and the smug comments section was almost too much to bear. You know the real reason the Left has been winning elections? The Left doesn’t throw their own under the bus for being “too liberal.” Liberals like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid say ridiculous things on almost a daily basis but you don’t see liberals in the media mocking them and marginalizing them. In fact, they are heroes to the Left. You may not agree with the way Palin presents the conservative message but it obviously connects with a good chunk of the base. Is the GOP and conservatism in general in such good shape that people in the establishment media like The American Conservative and NRO and GOP leadership should be mocking and pushing a good portion of the votership away in order to make yourselves look good to people who will never vote Republican anyway? I’d say the answer is probably “no.”
