Should it come to pass that conspiracy theory conservatism wins out once and for all over Goldwater conservatism, the Republican Party will be doomed, broken, kaput.
The right may appear to be crazy -- and they are -- but this doesn't mean it isn't going to work. Let me explain. In another life I was involved in direct mail -- I learned a lot.
There will be plenty of battles in and outside the Democratic Party in the months to come; what is evident now is the very real and uncertain shift toward to left's slightly more pluralistic platform.

An interesting narrative coming from the Right is that some day in the future historians are going to uncover presidential memoirs that will finally expose the true genius of the Cheney/Bush duo.
