There's nothing like turning on your erstwhile allies to clear the bitter taste of defeat from your pallet. David Frum leads off the battle for control of the Republican party by arguing that social conservatives need to be thrown under the bus. Frum feels that so-cons represent a dwindling demographic, and the party would be better off appealing to college educated latte libs arguing that Republicans would be better for their 401Ks.
Newsweek piles on by attacking Gov. Palin as a clotheshorse and a diva. Complaints that allegedly come from McCain staffers. These unnamed sources also assert that Gov. Palin decided on her own to attack Ayers and Wright. Palin was the one candidate who put the fear of Darwin into those godless libs. So now the effort begins to marginalize her in the party, because she represents a true conservative response to liberal feminism (aka abortion 24-7-365).
So-cons argue that it is they who have carried the party to victory time and again, and the party only loses when it listens to the latte & brie crowd and tries to be “inclusive” and “bi-partisan”. Polls seem to indicate that while so-cons were soft on McCain, they were stoked by Palin. So the left is trying to tar so-sons with the anti-intellectual and religious-freak smears.
I'm a cosnervative. I see the respect for life and traditional values are directly connected to limited government, free markets, and strong national defense.One informs and strengthens the other. These are the core values that our country was founded upon.
McCotter got it right:
1. Our liberty is from God not the government.
2. Our sovereignty rests in our souls not the soil.
3. Our security is through strength not surrender.
4. Our prosperity is from the private sector not the public sector.
5. Our truths are self-evident not relative.
