The GOP slides to the right

Earlier I noted how the GOP has slid so far to the right, that it is leaving its former heroes behind -- they have slammed McCain, Lindsey Graham and Newt for being insufficiently wingnutty. Practically socialists!

Keith Olbermann neatly juxtaposed two such stories tonight: Glenn Beck screeching that Mitt Romney is a socialist for advocating a decent health care system in Massachusetts. And Rudy Giuliani equating the dream of a nuclear-free world with leftist silliness, neatly papering over the fact that wingnut icons like Reagan pursued the same dream.
