Jonah’s flat-out wrong here with respect to the GOP - the party has no use for conservatives, outside of demanding “tribute” in the way of votes and donations. If left to its own devices, the party would not make any push in favor of any significant conservative causes.
He’s right about the number of hucksters in the conservative orbit, though — I’d lump Hannity and the Huckster himself in this category, and Coulter has become more of a saleslady for the party than for conservatism.
I agree, for conservatives, the GOP is a ruined brand.
Time for a new party.
