"Conservatism never fails. It is only failed."

Digby knew this day would come. I referenced it a few times too. Now we hear this from Rush Limbaugh:

"The Republican Congress has a problem. It is working without the presence of an elected conservative leader. George W. Bush is conservative but he is not a conservative. He's Republican, but he's not a conservative. He is not leading the conservative movement."
Here are the choice quotes that predicted this:
  • "In conservative intellectual discourse there is no such thing as a bad conservative. Conservatism never fails. It is only failed." - Rick Perlstein
  • "There is no such thing as a bad conservative. 'Conservative' is a magic word that applies to those who are in other conservatives' good graces. Until they aren't. At which point they are liberals." - the inimitable Digby
It's amazing that they're actually preparing a CYA so they can give their failed political philosophy another try.
