Saint Ronnie Undone

I think we are on the verge of a huge split in the Republican party with Sarah Palin representing the pitchfork waving, faith based nuts and the George Wills of the world representing the upper crust, coastal, "intellectual" conservatives.

Saint Ronnie's unholy alliance of social and fiscal conservatives is falling apart.

It is nearly impossible to maintain over the long term pairing a populist movement (which almost always degenerates into the dumbed down madness we see at McCain-Palin rallies) with an educated elite who truly don't care about the social and economic concerns of the masses. The only thing they have in common is a belief that government is somehow bad -- which fades to complete obscurity when people need help as badly as they do now, given the economic crisis.
