Another Modest Proposal

And while the American people voted for Obama and the Democrats because they wanted change, the GOP is increasingly convinced that they lost because they just weren’t crazy enough:

On a conference call with reporters just now, conservative Senator Jim DeMint — who has endorsed a conservative candidate to run in a GOP Senate primary against businesswoman Carly Fiorina, the next target of the Palin/tea party brigade — explicitly suggested his endorsement was a shot “against” GOP leaders.

DeMint explained his endorsement of the conservative candidate, Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, by citing “Chuck’s willingness to stand up against his own party leaders.”

(…)

“We need to shake up the Republican Party,” DeMint added. He also used some suggestive language to suggest that DeVore would be a reliable foe of the GOP establishment: “He’s gonna join the country, and not the club.”

Yes, that’s right: John Boehner and Mitch McConnell aren’t conservative enough, and the Republican Party needs to embrace full-on gonzo Palinism, even though it made a decisive majority of America recoil in horror a year ago.  Good luck with that, guys – you may be the Democrats’ only hope a year from now.
