|Political thought - not a typo

Kicking and screaming, Republicans will be dragged into the 20th century.
Granted, it's mostly the "Conservative" wingnut faction that is being dragged as they drag their party down with them, but nonetheless... dragging.
And what is it with the term conservative anyway? Conservative implies to me that one cautiously or judiciously considers the issues with deference to stability and continuity, not one that distorts and lies while bludgeoning the discourse with simplistic invocations of God and country. Real conservatives should be ashamed that the term has been hijacked by the likes of Palin. Let's call these "Conservatives" what they really are; a term that isn't used quite enough these days: Reactionaries.
Here's to more spectacular failures.
