AEI is in the process of losing all credibility with conservatives. A carbon tax - REALLY?! Who are they, Algore clones? Soros’ servants? Certainly they are idiots.

(Joe Biden: "Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy.")
What’s Rush’s phrase? Any group not actively pursuing a conservative agenda will be taken over by progressives? Something like that?
