It's even more incredible that she could say with a straight face that the mainstream conservatives have not done enough to banish the "kooks" from the movement. Given the way Ron Paul conservatives were treated by the mainstream right over the past year, and the banishment of all "come-home America" paleoconservatives a few years previous, one wonders who the hell else Parker would like to see excommunicated. Pro-life Christians, perhaps? Gun owners? If they do anymore banishing, who, exactly, will remain in their political coalition? Don't get me wrong, I'd love the Republican Party to officially disown its entire base -- the collapse of the GOP would provide a welcome opportunity to revive the anti-war, libertarian populism that was once a major force in this country. Let the Republicans see how their electoral fortunes wane if they rely exclusively epicene chickenhawks and rent-seeking CEOs to win their elections.
