Conservatism without conservatives?
The previous blog entry seems not entirely coherent, but I think thatís because the situation itís describing is almost indescribable. If, in order to preserve its marriage with President Bush, the ďconservative movementĒ purges all serious Bush critics, starting with Bruce Bartlett and ending with who knows who, then the conservative movement wonít have any conservatives left in it. If the remaining movement remains married to Bush, will we still be able to speak of a Bush-ĒconservativeĒ marriage? It seems less and less likely, especially as this movementís favorite presidential candidates for 2008 are the non-conservative McCain, the non-conservative Giuliani, and the non-conservative Rice.
