The rise of the Palindrones?

The excellent column you cited last week about Palin’s pre-presidential campaign strategy made me realize that we are now witnessing the growth of yet another splinter group among conservatives—the Palindrones.

The Palindrone syndrome is but one example of our dysfunctional Republican party as I am learning here in California. There is only one really competitive race for House in California—the 11th Congressional District. Otherwise gerrymandering has all but wired in the existing seats. Yet the RNC chooses not to provide much (perhaps any) financial support to their candidate. Here they have a good opportunity to pick up an additional House seat in the bluest of blue states. I’m beginning to fear that the left will get a permanent lock on power through the Democrats because their opposition refuses to do what it must: wage political war with a carefully planned, long-term strategy. All they seem to care about is lowering taxes, as though that alone were enough.
