How to tell a fake conservative from the real thing

Kinda continuing on my current Patch theme, Thursday’s column calls out fake conservatives for their abject failure to take personal responsibility for well…anything. As I note in the column, a poll found that 49 percent of Republicans believe ACORN stole the last presidential election.

The problem with that theory is, ACORN ceased to exist in 2010.

Until the GOP looks squarely in the mirror when they point those fingers, the Democrats will continue to rack up the kind of impressive wins we saw in November. Being an angry old white man will only get you so far. And with this country’s (and county’s) demographics changing with every breath, this could be the beginning of the end of the Republican Party.

The comments on that column are interesting as well. Enjoy!
