The Corner

Southerners Everywhere!


From Andrew Sullivan:

You’ll notice something interesting about the conservative 90s.
The West — the former bulwark of conservatism — shifted profoundly toward
the Democratic party…The South is a powerful force, and it swiftly forced
the West out of the Republican column…Fundamentalism is an inherently
expansionist philosophy. It cannot tolerate dissent the way easy-going
California conservatism once did….The GOP is now a fundamentalist,
Christian, Southern party first — and tries to cobble some more slices of
the pie onto that base…
