William F. Spinning in Grave

One fascinating part of this whole campaign season has been the sight of Old Guard Republican Conservatives throwing themselves on the rocks rather than seizing hold of the candidates their party has tossed them. David Brooks holds his nose when discussing Sarah Palin; Christopher Buckley comes out of the closet for Obama. George Will suggests that being wet behind the ears is correctable, whereas being impulsive and horrible is not. Kathleen Parker tells Sarah Palin to pack it in and go home.

For eight years, this solemn bunch has stood by and watched their party being hijacked by people they wouldn't have wax their Beamers, much less invite to lunch at the club. Can a new, committed, Conservative Party be the logical outgrowth of the GOP's sellout to the braindead hoi polloi?
