    It's just that the leadership has realized that appealing only to racists white Xtians is a recipe for permanent electoral minority.  Their base is made up of Rush Limbaugh listeners.  There is no middle to split.  Only the realization that they are fucked.

      and put in Peggy Noonan too, Repubs don't listen to them at all.

      Frum was lambasted by the Repubs for going off the reservation after GWB for urging moderation, Scarborough is on the dreaded liberal MSNBC and as relevant to them as any of the weak tea liberals we see on Fox are relevant to us, not at all. Peggy Noonan, no one listens to her anymore.

      No, there hasn't been any requests to moderate from people the Repubs will actually listen, only requests for better p.r. dressing up the same policies.

      Rush loves this, he gets more attention and can do what he does, thumb his nose at everyone, fart in their direction and make more racist remarks.

        more than he cares about ideology. Therefore, he'll just continue to double down on the hate as long as it keeps filling his pockets. When his audience dwindles and the money dries up, he'll have nowhere to go because he's gone way too far already to pull it back. No "Imus" comeback for him. He'll just have to sit on his giant stacks of money all alone in a big empty mansion and chew his oxycontins in bitter loneliness.

        In the meantime, he's destroying conservatism on our behalf. We should be thanking him. Maybe someday it'll be revealed that he was a covert Dem all along, subtly destroying the Republican party from the inside by exposing it's true monstrous face.

        Al Qeada is a faith-based initiative.
