Bush and the Base

Professor Bainbridge writes:

I see no reason why the MPA ought to energize the GOP base. If anything, it ought to make the base even more skeptical of the bona fides of the GOP Washington elite, whose sole remaining principle appears to be the will to cling to power.

Maybe that was their sole principle in the first place. I have to say I'm extremely heartened by this week. The hollow, ruthless cynicism of Karl Rove has finally dawned on the very people he has been manipulating for decades. This is a very good thing.
