Josh Marshall on the fall of conservatism

Hopeful words from TPM's Josh Marshall on the decline and fall of conservatism:

But as it was with Communism, so with conservatism. When all the people who call themselves conservatives get together and run the government, they're on the line for it. Conservative president. Conservative House. Conservative Senate.

What we appear to be in for now is the emergence of this phantom conservatism existing out in the ether, wholly cut loose from any connection to the actual people who are universally identified as the conservatives and who claim the label for themselves.
It's not just Bush either. Decades of failed conservative regimes, at home and abroad.

Time for something else. Like DKoz's libertarian democrat?
