Today, I read this excerpt from an article in The Guardian, and wondered if maybe the Mayans weren't as accurate as we thought. Did they mess up on that date? Conservatives boycott Fox News? Geezus, what next? Did the great shift happen on Nov. 4, 2008?
As the implosion of the defeated Republican campaign continued yesterday, the landscape of American conservatism was dotted with signs that these were very strange times indeed.
Rush Limbaugh, behemoth of right wing radio, took to the airwaves to declare war on two enemies: Barack Obama and the Republican party. Bloggers at FreeRepublic.com, an internet hub for conservatives, announced a boycott of Fox News, and John McCain's aides fell over one another to leak embarrassing details about the campaign to the press.
