Excellent article!

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/morning-jay-nomination-rules-are-rigged-against-conservatives_616072.html?page=1

Quote:
Republicans all across America like to think of their coalition as the “party of Ronald Reagan,” but have you noticed how frequently the party nominates somebody who opposed Ronald Reagan in 1980


Quote:
Self-identified conservatives tend to be a majority of most primary electorates, so one would think that, even with the limits of primaries, you’d still get a quality conservative nominee. But that isn’t necessarily the case in a three-way race. That’s the final, huge problem with the primaries. They do not build consensus, which ultimately would require the assent of the conservative side of the GOP. Instead, they create a game similar to the show Survivor – “outwit, outplay, outlast.”


This perfectly describes the nomination situation in 2008 and possibly again this year. And why this moderate nominee will lose to an inept incumbent just like the 2008 nominee was trounced by a political newcomer.

It's funny liberals say we're more organized and monolithic than they are , because clearly it's the opposite. What happened to Mike is happening to Santorum: people like Erickson and Coulter are calling him a "pro-life statist," a big govt conservative, etc. The conservative grassroots loves to in-fight, partly at the prompting of the conservative media.

THE TIMES are nightfall, look, their light grows less;
The times are winter, watch, a world undone:
They waste, they wither worse; they as they run
Or bring more or more blazon man’s distress.
And I not help. Nor word now of success:
All is from wreck, here, there, to rescue one—
Work which to see scarce so much as begun
Makes welcome death, does dear forgetfulness.
Or what is else? There is your world within.
There rid the dragons, root out there the sin.
Your will is law in that small commonweal…
