If the party bosses allowed a true conservative with guts on the ballot without interference there would not be a problem with the election or this country for that matter.
The problem, Mr. Sowell, rests on Karl and his ilk, not the conservatives. It’s been that way for a long time.
I ask you on the day of your daughter's wedding. Do you really believe that? Me? I ain't so sure. I live in a country where 53% of the voters had no trouble pulling the lever for a jive-ass Chicago Community Organizer, whose very name is not a settled question.
With $4 gas, and 10% unemployment (at least), that same 53% is still out there. "Conservatism" requires thoughtful analysis, enlightened self-interest, the ability to detect the difference between bullshiite and Shinola, etc.
My research over to the Wal-Mart parking lot has convinced me that these attributes are in shorter supply than we might like.
