And looking at it all, I have to feel sorry for the old-time conservatives. It seems like the old voices of reason among conservatives, those who actually had half a brain and thought about what they were saying, like William Buckley and Barry Goldwater have now been replaced by non-thinkers like Michele Bachmann (pictured), Sharron Angle, George Will, Louie Gohmert and other Republican politicians and pundits. Let me start with Michele Bachmann. The Minnesota representative can't open her mouth without something dumb coming out. She has now decided that she is opposed to a global economy (because it will obviously lead to a one world government according to her).

"Well, President Obama is trying to bind the United States into a global economy where all of our nations come together in a global economy. You've Done It Again, Bachmann. The Company That Bachmann Keeps. Yesterday I wrote about the fact that Rep.

The Company That Bachmann Keeps

Michele Bachmann had signed on to speak at Joseph Farah's "Take Back America Conferece" with a bunch of Birthers, fake prostitutes, anti-gay militants, and Christian Reconstructionists. Today Andy Birkey posted a link to Bachmann's financial disclosure form [PDF] and noted that she reported having accepted seven trips paid for by right-wing groups - Young America's Foundation, American Israel Education Foundation, Eagle Forum, Concerned Women for America, National Home Education Legal Defense, Council of Graduate Students at Regent University, and David Horowitz's Freedom Center: If Bachamann is being flown around the country by YAF, Phyllis Schlafly, CWA, and David Horowitz, I guess that is shouldn't come as much of a surprise that she'd be more than willing to associate with the likes of Joseph Farah, Alan Keyes, and Matt Barber.

True conservatives condemn military tribunals for terrorists - R

When they do a 180 degree turn away from their own ideology in order to curry populist political favor. As the White House engages in a war of words with the likes of Sen. Kit Bond (R-Mo), Rep. Peter King (R-NY) and Rep. John Hoekstra (R-Mich.) – each a self-professed, committed ultra-conservative – over the Mirandizing of the Christmas Day bomber and the failure to place him into the military justice system as a way of avoiding rights due him in the Article III courts, none of these players seem to realize they have completely switched ideological sides.
