It might make people who hate conservatism and conservatives feel good to think all conservatives are anti-intellectual yahoos who swear by the nonsense of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. But it ain't so.

Of course it isnt so. The problem is, however, that the far Right lunatics are defining your party and as long as thats going on, you guys will all be (rightly or wrongly) lumped in with them. Get your party back from people like Malkin, Limbaugh, Beck and Coulter and see how many moderates come back to you.

Honorable notion until you read the comments after the piece.

You are characterizing several of the posters here as anti-intellectual yahoos?

It's not my party. How many times do I have to state that? I am a registered Democrat. Since I started voting in presidential elections in 1988, the only time I ever voted Republican was in 2004.

Get YOUR party back from the Olbermans, Obamas, Reids, Pelosis, Krugmans, Matthews, Mitchells, Springsteens, Robbins and Penns of the world and see how many moderates come back to YOUR party. This before you deign to lecture others.

The article you linked to says it, not me. While we are nit picking here, and saying not me, you, I doubt anyone has said that ALL conservatives are, how did you say it, anti-intellectual yahoos, just the ones that deny reality.

Trollie, you need to notice that the reasons the Dems won by such a huge margin this last election cycle is because of the moderates. They dont like crazy and wont vote for this current crop of republicans/conservatives.

And, before you lecture me, little man, you might take note that those same moderates are abandoning your messiah in droves. They feel they were misled (they were) and that they were lied to (as they also were). Your Immaculate One has even begun losing the trust of his own party faithful. It only took the democrats and BarryO a little over six months to shoot themselves in the butt. I told you they would. No one in their right mind will trust anything BarryO proposes from here on out even if it's a free puppy and five years worth of dog chow, no strings attached, for every family in America. Do you now see how far your savior has come - and in such a short time?

Blah blah blah.. Messiah? Immaculate One? how old are you? Meanwhile, everything I said is true and you know it. I love that.

It WAS true. Now what I said would happen is happening and that's the truth. Your heroes have shown their true colors and all but the most biggest America-haters are beginning to see it. After the healthcare debacle the electorate will look askance at EVERYTHING BarryO proposes. The Right didn't do this to BarryO and the democrats. They did it to themslves.

Yes that is right RBK, sitting from your lofty perch in Grand Rapids you get to decide who is an American hater and who is not.

So all of these people have been brought back from the dark to the light. Okay you get the mid term elections and the conservatives take back everything, then block Obama, You and the rest of the brillant conservative movement can then put Jeb Bush in office in 2012.

Even after all of that it will never change the fact that you are a poor excuse for a human being, even using your own kid to back up the "hermaphrodite" statement about Rachel Maddow, using your wife's "rack" as a reason why someone should be impressed with her, you never spent a day actually serving your countrybut didn't care if someone else died in a war that you gleefully excepted a tax break during war time of all times.....yeah we need more American's like you!

Watch the approval polls, little man. America doesn't trust BarryO or the democrats. It had been awhile and many had forgotten why, but it's all coming back to them now.

I don't think David Frum knows any of the posters here. If the shoe fits fine. But I did not make that judgment.

Frum manages to ignore the inconvenient truth
that Pelosi and Durbin started this, and he's calling out
Limbaugh for responding to it. Maybe Rush shouldn't stoop
to that level, but he didn't start it.

But he's saying that responding with these nutty attacks rather than reasoned opposition hurts the conservative cause.
