    Conservative policies have on the whole worked - insofar as any set of policies can be said to 'work' in the real world. Conservatives of the Reagan-Bush-Gingrich-Bush years have a fair amount to be proud of.

    Conservatives are routinely pilloried on television. A&E likely greenlit 'Duck Dynasty' in the first place because executives believed Americans would laugh at the redneck antics of the self-described 'white trash' family.

    Conservatives shouldn't count on the Supreme Court to do our work for us on Obamacare. The Court may rule as it should, and strike down the mandate. But it may not. And even if it does, the future of health care in America - and for that matter, the future of limited government - depends ultimately on the verdict of the American people.

    How many people disapprove of the job the Conservatives are doing? Seventy percent. Of those same people, how many will vote for them again?...Seventy percent. What the fuck? Where did they take this poll, at an S&M parlor?

    It was always foolhardy for Republicans and conservatives to stake their objections to Obamacare on the number of sign-ups; Social Security is going bankrupt despite 100% enrollment. The reality is that Obama was always destined to hit his required numbers because, after all, he has the power of government to compel action.

    It's funny how the hippies and the punks tried to get rid of the conservatives, but they always seem to get the upper hand in the end.

    Obama is not Bill Clinton. I don't think he's willing to let conservatives have any victories at all.

    Only conservatives believe that subversion is still being carried on in the arts and that society is being shaken by it. Advanced art today is no longer a cause, it contains no moral imperative. There is no virtue in clinging to principles and standards, no vice in selling or in selling out.

    Political debate with liberals is basically impossible in America today because liberals are calling names while conservatives are trying to make arguments.

    Scott Brown is a superstar. Scott Brown won a race that nobody expected Republicans to even be competitive in, and he was able to do it at a time when nothing else going on, so he captured the attention of conservatives across the country.
