That's a shame

Quite the report on the conservative circular firing squad:
Tax-cutters are calling evangelicals bullies. Christian conservatives say Republicans in Congress have let them down. Hawks say President Bush is bungling the war in Iraq. And many conservatives blame Representative Mark Foley’s sexual messages to teenage pages.

With polls showing Republican control of Congress in jeopardy, conservative leaders are pointing fingers at one other in an increasingly testy circle of blame for potential Republican losses this fall.
My favorite quote from the article courtesy of Dick Armey, exacting a measure of revenge it seems:
“Economic conservatives,” he argued, were emerging as the swing voters in need of attention, in part because they had become more likely to vote Democratic in the years since President Bill Clinton was in office. “A lot of people believe he brought us from deficits to surpluses, and there is a certain empirical evidence there,” Mr. Armey acknowledged.
When Dick Armey is singing Bill Clinton's praises, something big has got to be happening out there. Yet somehow, Karl Rove continues to smile.

(Maybe he's insane...:))
