Commentary By Ron Beasley
A quote of the day via Sully:
"I've become less conservative since the Republican Party started becoming goofy," -Richard Posner.
The raving loons in the GOP base - precisely because they have no serious thinking behind them - will double-down on their fantasies, empowered by partisan hatred. And that's why the GOP needs to be defeated this fall. For the sake of an honest conservatism.
I don't think that judge Posner has become less conservative. There is nothing conservative about the Republican base. They are goofy and that is kind - they are lunatics and they have taken over the asylum. The Republicans and the conservative movement created this monster by pandering to the bigots and the religious right for votes and they have taken control of the party.
