      then Gingrich or Santorum would have won the primaries last year.  Indeed, the Republican Party is a bad party for allowing Gingrich and Santorum to get as far as they did -- but their rank-and-file can still recognize that Santorum is an idiot and Gingrich is an asshole.  

      Rather, the interplay between the homegrown conformism of its conservative rank-and-file and the elitism of its political class tends to produce not the sort of pure evil you'd see in old horror movies but rather a rancid version of the "not-the-Obama-party," as the Wall Street Journal started to notice last year.

        ... focus on the Presidential race? I don't recall narrowing the scope to the Presidential race, in the way that daily kos all too often narrows the scope to arguments about the White House to distract attention from the more important state and federal legislative races.
