Right-wing columnist urges GOP to abandon outreach: ‘Colorblind conservatism’ is futile

Disgraced conservative columnist John Derbyshire is urging the Republican Party to abandon its meager efforts to court voters who aren’t racist white men.

Ann Coulter: GOP has a ‘problem with charlatans’ like Sarah Palin

Conservative author Ann Coulter on Monday night lamented that “charlatans” like Sarah Palin managed to remain prominent voices within the conservative movement, according to The Shark Tank.

Conservativism becoming indistinguishable from sadism

Andrew Sullivan is becoming even more aware of how much the conservative movement is driven by mindless sadism and cruelty.

I’ve got an interview with Thomas Frank later this week that I’ll probably be publishing later, but I thought I’d review his new book The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Rule, especially in the light of his depressing conclusion, which is that there’s almost no way that Obama or any living…

Sameosity

No More Mister Nice Blog points out that the new generation of fiercely independent rebel conservatives are actually just like the last few generations of fiercely independent rebel conservatives.
