Cons hold their own Rally

The wrongwingnuts are holding their own little confab this week and thrilling each other with feel good rhetoric on how to regain their former glory. Jeb Bush really wowed the crowd. Bet they're sorry they propped up his boy blunder of a brother now. If they had got rid of George in 04, not only would we not be in this mess now, they would have stood a chance to run the bro they like the best in 08. Now they're stuck with Newt.

But this is the money graf in the coverage.
At a Friday night panel on the state of conservatism, commentator Laura Ingraham argued that Republicans -- if they are to have any chance of winning in 2008 -- must wake up to the fact that Democrats are embracing politicians such as Sen. James Webb (Va.), a gruff military veteran who delivered his party's response to the State of the Union on Tuesday by attacking President Bush's Iraq plan while offering a populist economic message.

"We have to be careful with conservatives not to remain in an echo chamber," Ingraham said. "The party that comes off as the party that represents the American worker best is the party that wins in 2008."
Note the choice of words. Not the party that best represents the working class, but rather the party that best appears to be on the working man's side. They're not looking for better policy, just better propaganda.

What about a party and a candidate who treats the Constitution as more than a list of suggestions?

Wouldn't that be novel and groovy?
