The Republican Implosion

Jeffrey Goldberg at The New Yorker has written an article on the implosion of the Republican party. It's a good read.

One thing it contains a lot of, however, is quotes from people like Newt Gingrich who lament the fall of the Republican brand, while distancing themselves from their contribution to that fall. The goal here seems to be clear (and has been for a while)... paint the past six years-- and President Bush-- as some aberration unconnected to 'conservativism' (whatever that even means at this point) and try and assure people that making the Republican Party more conservative is what will save the party and America in turn.

Even more upsetting than that narrative is how eager the 'liberal media' seems to push it.

As conservative blogger Rod Dreher says, "Bush is today who he always was. The difference is we conservatives pretty much loved the guy -- when he was a winner."
