My Enchiridion Militis colleague, Paul Cella, has a good post at RedState, where he says this:

My point is rather to lay out what can only be a sketch of a great and largely unremarked fact: that under an ostensibly conservative President and center-right governing coalition, the Conservatism that still characterizes the American people, and still infuriates men of the Left, has suffered blows far more crippling than any since the 1960s. A man thought to be almost revolutionary in his conservatism has in fact achieved a vast consolidation of the gains of the Left.
