Betrayal

Gop

It turns out that the arguments of The Conservative Soul have gained much more traction since I wrote it. The disarray of the GOP primary season, the collapse in Republican fund-raising, the almost hilarious attempts of the sectarian religious base to find a candidate saintly enough (but not a Mormon, thanks!), and the complete contempt for fiscal conservatism championed by Gerson, Rove and Bush have all made an impact. The Wall Street Journal provides the raw data today, and a new mantra that will define a generation. I didn't leave the Republican party. It left me.
