I can’t really watch the whole GOP debate, because it’s at the Reagan Library and the Reagan worshipping is too out of control.
But I did flip to it and see the four remaining candidates — Huckabee, Paul, Romney, and McCain — sitting next to each other. And it struck me… what an odd group of characters. But, of course, they do represent the four food groups of the modern conservative party: the religious wing, the crazy libertarian wing, the business wing, and the McCain wing. Whichever wing can grab 30% of the primary electorate is going to definte the shape of the party.
