The Anchoress » Gonna be interesting - First Impressions: "I expect we’ll start seeing some conservatives talk of “purges,” of pulling even harder to the right. And I think if they do that, they’ll set themselves up for a bigger disaster than this break-house blast. A few months ago, during the Harriet Miers/Dubai Ports/Immigration Debacle Trifecta - during which time some of conservatives descended into presidential namecalling to compete with the rankest sorts from DU - I thought (and said) that the “purist” conservatives (whom even Ronald Reagan said were impossible to please and didn’t know how to take 75% and walk away winners) were playing too near the ledge. The “sat home and taught ‘em a lesson” folks have let our troops down, for sure. Hope they can live with that. The conservatives who are already saying “we need to send more Tancredos to Washington” are mistaken."
