In anticipation of his revival meeting, the Great Leader and flag-hugger extraordinaire is distributing tracts by cranks pretending to be conservatives. I've flipped through it. On its face it contains general statements that most Americans can agree with, but before you're very deep in you can tell it was written by a religious extremist with some pretty damaging ideas. Associating this with modern conservatism is exactly the kind of thing that's marginalizing the GOP and the public's view of conservatism in general. If an America run by Mormon imams is what he's advocating, I'm out, and so are most Americans. No wonder the GOP, in California and elsewhere, continues to spiral inward and down.
