this isn't intended to be a con/lib flame.  simply that it's good to see many cons realizing the bill of goods chimpy mcbu$h and the rest of the neocon agenda has sold them.

The center is where most reside. I think the word "conservative" is being used by the left much like "liberal" is used by the right.

I know a number of  "conservative" democrats and "liberal" republicans. What I have found is the opinion that the republican party has been abducted by the cultural right (re: Base) and I think that is the source of much of the disapproval. Whenever a party moves (or is perceived to have moved) too far to the fringe it gets whacked.

The ballot measures in various states on election night were a reflection of the far right being rebuked. Well, except for the gays. It seems no one wants them married or adopting kids.

Huckabee says basically the same thing.

I think 8 years of Epic Fail by the most 'Conservative' administration to come down the pike HAS to enter into this equation.

That said, I take your point:

There's a difference between 'Conservative', and  'So Called Conservative Radical RightWingnut'.

Sonofabitch if Huckabee isn't coming on Rachel Maddow right now to discuss this very topic.

Serendipity FTW!

I've been mad about the direction the party took for longer than 8 years.  Glad to see some are catching up.

P.J. O'Rourke had a pretty good rant as well - We Blew It

Well, that was disappointing.

You've basically got a bunch of people running around saying:

'The Party would be better off if it got rid of everybody that doesn't think like me'

The intelligentsia (The Late William F Buckley Wing) and the Big Money say to cast The Base off, The Base is pointing out that they're the ones that did all the work (Huckabee actually said : 'Who do you think is going to volunteer to answer the phones?'), The Libertarians all ditched for Ron Paul and disappeared completely.
