#notallconservatives... Well, Actually Maybe it is All Conservatives

No surprise I agree with Atrios about the conservative movement being and having always been a horrible thing.  I am still, however, a bit impressed at how well a movement without any popular ideas manages to be a popular movement.  Yes, racism/sexism/xenophobia/... but it's more than that.

The main goal of the conservative movement is to take stuff from most people (mostly poor, and most loudly minority but really they don't give a shit) and give it to rich people.  That's a shit goal that huge majorities in this country believe is a shit goal, and yet they get people to buy into it.  At some level, that's impressive--scary and horrible, but impressive nevertheless.
