So: why is it happening? And if you think it reflects a problem with the Republican Party and the conservative movement, what do you think might help?

What do you think explains the steady stream of Republicans who have basically accused the current GOP of being nuts? It's not a short list...I'm thinking of David Frum, Bruce Bartlett, and there's a new example this weekend, but as I say it's not a short list. It's certainly happening. It's somewhat similar, I'd say, to the migration of anti-communists away from the Democrats in the 1970s, but it's not quite the same thing; this crowd isn't so much saying that the GOP left them on policy, but that the GOP has just gone nuts.
