Howard Fineman opens his mind for us to see a fantasy

I find it remarkably interesting how liberals are treating the debate among conservatives over the Miers nomination. Howard Fineman writes an aritcle called "The Conservative Crackup" where he thinks the conservative movement

"that began 50 years ago with the founding of Bill Buckley’s National Review; that had its coming of age in the Reagan Years; that reached its zenith with Bush’s victory in 2000 — is falling apart at the seams"

To quote Bugs Bunny, "What a maroon". I think liberals have chaffed against the real splintering of the Democratic party and the true prospect of a liberal crackup for several years now. At the first sign of disagreement, then they come in predicting a "crackup" of the GOP. The difference between the parties is that among the GOP there is a historical pattern of healthy debate where disagreement exists. Instead of forcing all to think alike, the GOP has expanded the tent. The Dems on the other hand have worked to mold thinking that is robotically alike among their members. Dissent is crushed keeping the tent limited only to those in their mold. While the GOP is quick to call out a fellow member in the wrong, the Dems have time and again held the line. If their leaders do wrong, deny, deny, deny.

The Dems keep trying to take the problems they have struggled with for years and falsely attempt to brand the GOP with them: a wildly corrupt presidency, criminal tendencies among congressional leaders, psychopathic lying and now crackup among their coalition. These lame tactics may work with the core liberal faithful, but most see through it.

In all likelihood, by the time the '06 elections come around Miers will be on the bench proving she will interpret the Constitution as promised. The alledged criminal accusations will have had their day in court with the likely outcome of leading to nothing. A few bonus items like a passed Constitution in Iraq, and tangible ensuing progress. Maybe some solid budget cuts lead by the GOP will have happened. I don't know exactly what will happen, but my prediction is a GOP momentum by next September just before the elections. After all one strategy during difficulty is to let things go real low before the improvement to maximize the affect of a comeback.
