I thought Erick Erickson’s essay on the disconnect between Washington Republicans and their “heartland” base was actually kind of interesting. It’s kind of a template for understanding how unhinged rubes feel about being played by much smarter political strategists. It reads like a history of how nutszoid lunatics have been led along by the nose by the likes of Karl Rove, and now they are sick and tired of the whole business and are forcing the Washington Establishment to actually act on their heat-fevered obsessions.
Who cares if it will work? The important thing is that they all feel better.
Ironically, I think this will end somewhat quickly with the whole party broken like Humpty Dumpty. What comes next, I can’t even say.
