Sources of Republican Conduct

Prof. Henry Nau promises a look at "the conservative camps whose internecine squabbling threatened the president's victory." Funny, I always thought it was, you know, the colossal fuck-ups during the Iraq occupation that threatened the president's victory. Seriously, though, anytime you screw up that badly there's bound to be infighting. Bush could stuff his cabinet with the most loyal of ideologues—it won't make a difference. When real disaster strikes, some of those ideologues will have been right, some of them wrong, and the squabbling takes over from there.
