Excellent article!

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

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.
