    but it seems to me that these "conservatives" are more radical now than they were even last year. If they were vulnerable to common sense, you would think they would be bending the crazy factor downward instead of upward. They seem to be diverging from reality at a growing tangential arc. Honestly, I just don't get these guys.

      Why wouldn't they become ever more radical? It's working: they have succeeded in keeping power far beyond their ballot results. Specifically enough power to prevent the government from acting to reform all they did when they had the power trifecta monopoly for 6 Bush years, getting two whole wars in (that continue). They've cut the government by a solid chunk, all constrained to labor (not defense contractors or killing). They've got the president and his party to adopt their priorities, including drone killings and wiretapping, enough that they have the votes to do them.

      They're crazy all right. But they'd be crazier to stop doing what works. Until the world is a corporate anarchy, their work is not done.

        And by gosh, they're getting even closer to that goal than Khrushchev!
