GOP, GOP, Uber Alles

This is, admittedly, just one silly guy getting caught doing something silly.  There are more important people out there than the director of the White House office of public liaison, the man “tasked with serving as the ‘pipeline’ to the president for the administration’s ‘most conservative supporters.'”

But it sure seems like loyalty is a much more important trait than merit among movement conservatism, whether it’s in the pages of the National Review, among the heads of executive agencies, the Congressional GOP, or the people charged with rebuilding Iraq.

I’m not the first person to note that competence ain’t job one within the Bush administration.  But the rot goes a lot deeper than that.  Movement conservatism is all about the movement, and has nothing to do with conservatism.
