The newly found moral relativism of the Right

Nice post over at Bull Moose detailing the newly found moral relativism of the Republican Party. The party that was swept into power in 1994 on promises of reform has now been hopelessly corrupted by the power they have achieved.

"Of course, the right was not terribly concerned about the principles of federalism or opposing judicial activism in Bush v. Gore or in the recent Schiavo situation. The principle of limited government was cast aside long ago for pork barrel incumbent protection and for the benefit of their corporate cronies in the Medicare drug bill. Ultimately, it is all about power.

Conservatives are the new moral relativists. If you don't believe the Moose, just ask Ralph Reed, Jack Abramoff, Grover Norquist, Tom DeLay, and yes, Karl Rove. They came to power in '94 promising to tame the power of government - now they are enamored by it.

Conservatives have made the ultimate faustian bargain. Can conservatism survive conservatives?"
