The Death of Republicanism

One of the things that has mystified me more than anything else about the Bush administration has been its ability to keep traditional conservatives within its party ranks.

Here's an eloquent reflection by a Goldwater Republican who's bailing at last.

This is a guy I'd have railed against in the 1980s as the enemy, who now I realize is just someone who differs with me, but with whom I could engage on critical issues.

His elegy for the Republican party has somehow made me very sad.
