"The Moose concurs with Rick Perlstein's assessment that the GOP has become a corrupt throwback to the days of Tricky Dick. However, Democrats, embodied by their National Chairman, are McGovern retro. And we know who won that confrontation."

I'm not sure if the corruption mentioned is anything unique to the GOP or rather is endemic to Washington, but there certainly has been a a fast backpedal from the fiscal conservatism that was a hallmark of the Reagan-era GOP. Either way, Barry Goldwater wouldn't be too happy with the GOP as it is now.

It is appalling that my beloved GOP is not fiscally conservative these days. That may be a consequence of being in control of the House for a decade(!), guess when you have control of the levers of power for a while you get lazy. Guess that is human nature though, especially when the scope is national and the amounts are in the billions. Guess this proves Republicans are human too ;-)
