I assumed that up until this point, America was firmly split down the middle in its conservative/liberal leanings. And love it or hate it, conservatism has been on the upswing since Rush Limbaugh became big 10 years ago, causing more people, IMHO, to publicly identify with it.
I wonder if that’s changing. Over the last week, we’ve seen 1) Rush get accused of doing illegal drugs, 2) Rush get accused of racism (in a more public way than usual), 3) Arnold come under fire for goosing women, and 4) the Bush administration get accused of exposing CIA operatives, on top of all the complaints about the war and the economy.
I’m wondering: is this a bad press week for conservatives, or is America starting to become significantly disenchanted with that political leaning?
