re: #20 Killgore Trout

The problem is there’s no leadership so blogs and Fox News fill the void. The blogs by themselves couldn’t do this on their own. Fox has a huge megaphone and they are the main source of the problem. The blogs certainly don’t help things.

It can’t be corrected until someone prominent on the right takes a firm reasonable stand against Fox and the rest of the right wing media and garners more conservative support than Fox and Limbaugh. In other words, it can’t be corrected. There isn’t any way for the right to reign it back in.

I mean, imagine a scenario that would allow for a reasonable moderate conservative leader to emerge, gain national prominence, and drive the message back out of crazyland and into the mainstream. Such a thing couldn’t be done without directly taking on Fox, Limbaugh, Palin, etc, and taking them on means you are inviting a 24/7 smear campaign directed to the very audience you might hope to reach.

There is no way home from this for the right, except off a cliff. They have no choice but to continually ratchet up the crazy until it explodes.
