Is Our Conservatives Learning?

Spoiler alert: no. Well, Perry and Walker certainly have gotten smart. The others seem to have learned nothing but how to ape the leader's worst behaviors. Let's a a little look, shall we?

Mustang Bobby, at Bark Bark Woof Woof, leads it off with why Dr. Ben Carson will never be president of anything meaningful.

Ed, at Gin And Tacos, has a compelling article detailing Trump and Fiorina "more like actors playing – overplaying, actually – the role of Greedy Businessman." The GOPer rubes seem to really like that schtick.

On the Scott Walker beat: Ed Andendall, of Stupidparty Math v. Myth has a solid article called, "Wisconsin Voters Decide to Slit Their Throats."

And finally, Jurassic Pork, of Welcome Back To Pottersville, provides, perhaps the best answer to today's Title Question in his fine piece, "When In a Hole, Stop Digging."
