Judascons . . .

The Washington Monthly has a symposium of conservative writers arguing that it is preferable for Republicans to lose control of Congress this fall with contributions from such luminaries as Jeffrey Hart and Joe Scarborough. The introduction states:
With Republicans controlling Congress and the White House, conservatives these days ought to be happy, but most aren't. They see expanding government, runaway spending, Middle East entanglements, and government corruption, and they wonder why, exactly, the country should be grateful for Republican dominance. Some accuse Bush and the Republicans today of not being true conservatives. Others see a grab bag of stated policies and wonder how they cohere. Everyone thinks something’s got to change.

Now seven prominent conservatives dare to speak the unspeakable: They hope the Republicans lose in 2006. Well, let’s be diplomatic and say they’d prefer divided government--soon.

I haven't read them all yet and can only assume that they are liberally sprinkled with terms like "disaster," "disgrace," "miserable failure" and "incompetent."

I have read most of these articles and you're right, they do say such things.

Scarbourough also likes to swear a lot, which makes him sound like 40-year old frat boy.
