"Center-Right Nation" Indeed
The Rethugs have very little in the way of emotional comfort food following their thrashing at the polls nearly two weeks ago. But that doesn't mean they haven't been munching. The main source of comfort? The canard that America is still a "center-right" nation. As we've already noted, the wingers think what just hit them wasn't really what it was: a shift of political gravity away from the right. Now, we have one of the few reality-based conservative thinkers writing that there has been a shift to the left-center. The writer, Tod Lindberg, is a fellow at the Hoover (!) Institution and former McSame adviser, but he'd better be ready for the angry mail he'll be receiving as a result of his letting reality intrude into the magical world of the far-right.
