Credit Crisis for the Intellectually Bankrupt

Some doomsday cults go out in style -- sweatsuits and pudding.

But without a comet to "ride", the conservative movement just flounders like Rush with a Dominican.

Young conservatives bemoan they cannot get a government job (oh, how conservative of them):

Young conservatives could apply for regular jobs, they acknowledge, but they also believe that their 20s are a safe age -- likely no children, often unmarried -- to start low- to moderate-paying jobs that potentially could launch prestigious careers in politics or public policy.

Golly, people in their 20s who attend CPAC are single, stunning.

As the picture are right shows conservatives or in their rightful place:

Coulter in the mens' room signs books while waiting for Larry Craig. Perhaps her contract rider mandates she be within 20 feet of purge facilities?

And the hot new name on the conservative scene Joe Sammy the Plumber Wurzelbacher and his new book?

About 11 people wandered into the rows of seats set up hopefully in the basement of a downtown Border's bookstore to hear Joe speak...Total copies of "Joe the Plumber" sold: five.

Joe's future plans? To work in construction -- undoubtedly on projects which are the result of the Stimulus package. Where he can listen to Limbaugh.
