We Are All Liberals Now

I do not link to Free Republic, but if I did, I would direct your attention to the thread titled "It Didn’t Work (Buckley declares Iraq a failure)" about how even Wild Bill Buckley, the founder of modern conservatism, has finally been driven into exile. Reading the comments posted by the rank-and-file freeperians, you can't help but quake in awe at the display of mass cognitive dissonance.

O. M. G. I gotta say: the fall from grace of William F. Buckley is a watershed moment.

David Neiwert, Glenn Greenwald and a cast of thousands have been recently going on about how American "movement conservatives" aren't really conservative anymore, they're actually more like a "political religion" or Bush-worshipping cultists. I've been saying they have more in common with Leninists than anything else for quite a while now, and I'm glad that others in the blogosphere are finally starting to notice and saying out loud what I've grown tired of repeating. May they bring more eloquence to it than me.

Leninists. You laughed at me when I called them Leninists in 2002. You ignored me when I called them Leninists in 2004. You're going to argue with me when I call them Leninists now in 2006. But, and mark my words, in 2008, they will be Leninists.

Update 1.0: You can watch the spreading oil from the shipwreck alighting at Captain's Quarters (to whom I will link, though I'm sure Captain Ed doesn't read us).
