The good ship U.S.S. Compassionate Conservatism just took a torpedo in the magazine. Derbyshire, irritated by the Bush administrations spending spree, and equating that with compassionate conservatism, just doesnt get it.
No the writer didn't get it: If the moderates don't believe that conservative ideas can win then why are they bothering with the republican party? There is a whole big party out there that claims compassion; that keeps people poor and uneducated out of its supposed compassion. That's where you moderates belong: Don't let the door hit you in the a** on the way out.

This election was lost by the center moving away from the GOP. Wihout the votes of the undecided/independent voter, the GOP can't win elections.
