Amusingly, it was only a couple months back that neo-con hack David Frum was all giddy over how he could single-handedly rescue American conservatism from itself:
Frum's previous bestselling books have earned accolades for their courage and creativity from liberals and conservatives alike. Today, with the conservative movement and the Republican Party facing their greatest danger since Watergate, Frum has again stepped forward with new ideas to take conservatism--and America--into a new century of greatness.
And then, the ugliness of reality finally takes hold:
To prevent these negative consequences--to retrieve victory from impending defeat--would require more creativity and responsiveness than Republicans and conservatives have displayed for many years. Unless American conservatism can rejuvenate itself, the odds favour the liberal left holding sway until the day that its own errors and delusions lay it low again.
Welcome to the real world, David. Prepare to be unhappy.
