As a former Republican, I find the fearmongering by...

Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly...and yes, Limbaugh to be the most gutless, cowardly fake conservatives to be the most despicable human behavior on the planet short of the SS. They are not conservatives but authoritarians hiding behind conservatism because they are gutless! They want you to fear your neighbor! So much for "christianity" by these fakes!

These "men" are cowards. The party (for what it's worth anymore) needs to rid itself of them...BUT considering that, Steele to have balls of steel which is an impossibility. It is important that small-d democracy prevail i.e. freedom! Why the Brooks, Will, Kristols of this world do not have balls enough to call them out (ok, maybe Brooks!) is really a question!

It is time for good, STRONG men to stand up and (if necessary) SHOUT down these cowards! Ironically, a Schwarzeneggar has more balls shouting down Palin than the rest!

Why neocons (and Rush) will eventually fail...

and take the party with them: they put Values above Facts. The see all facts as biased for or against them (there's clearly a streak of paranoia running through their thought, and paranoia only serves one's enemies). They really are very weak in their understanding of power and how it works. When Rush says the party doesn't need better policies, he is effectively saying they only need their values; that that will be enough to re-acquire power. But without policies one cannot truly have a politics, and in a democracy politics IS the path to power...unless of course deep down you are only paying lip service to democracy and really the path to power that you're really espousing is to simply TAKE it. Of course, that is called tyranny. Without a formulation of policy that is coherent with your values so voters can make a reasoned choice, you have only a vacuous soliloquy...or...sedition.
