Leftists, moderates and RINOs, in their deep compassion for conservatives, and in their sincere wish to see the conservative movement thrive, have made numerous "helpful" post-election observations. To provide an example, I quote the words of Mort Kondracke. "In recent years, Republicans have let right-wing talk show hosts whip the GOP base into frenzies...that have branded the party as troglodyte." Translation: If conservatives would stop subjecting themselves to brainwashing by cave-dwelling radio talk show hosts, they would see the light of day and would begin to promote a more enlightened, progressive agenda. If that weren't so insulting I'd say "nice try."
Ignoring the voices of the conservative base is exactly why the GOP is in so much trouble. Despite the objections of the most conservative Republicans, the GOP nominated Maverick McCain, and as we all know, this experiment with moderate conservatism was a complete failure. For principled conservatives, the take-home message from Election 2008 is very clear. "The challenge is not to water down the conservative message, but to beef it up, even while making it more persuasive to those who are skeptical."
