GOP War on Conservatives Continues

Stubbornly refusing to learn from the disastrous losses and even more disastrous victories of its “moderate” and Conservative-In-Name-Only candidates, the Republican Party continues to give conservatives the cold shoulder while wooing liberals into its left-listing big tent. The most recent example comes from Lake County, Illinois, where Paul Mitchell, conservative challenger to an establishment Republican State Representative, reports that he was unceremoniously booted from the Party’s booth at the county fair, on the grounds that only incumbents, not candidates, were allowed to display materials and communicate with voters. I guess that’s one way of keeping conservatives from reclaiming the GOP.
