Conservative says: To Hell With Conservativism - We're In Power Now!

I was actually shocked (shocked!) to see an ersatz conservative actually speak the truth about the ersatz nature of republicans/conservatives today.

From the WaPo:

Dinh, now a Georgetown law professor, urged the CPAC faithful to carve out a Bush exception to their ideological principle of limited government. "The conservative movement has a healthy skepticism of governmental power, but at times, unfortunately, that healthy skepticism needs to yield," Dinh explained, invoking Osama bin Laden.

What was Dinh thinking? His party has achieved electoral victory based upon two things: (1) voters being stupid and mean, and (2) the truth about republicans being somewhat hidden from stupid people. In one fell swoop, (2) is gone, becuase this guy had to open his big mouth.

Hey Dinh - Osama bin WHO? Perhaps you're referring to Osama bin I-don't-really-spend-much-time-thinking-about-him? Jackass.
