Way of the Whigs

Jon Taplin speculates at TPMCafe:
There is a great deal of hand-wringing going on inside the Republican Party right now. The potential of a landslide blowout by Obama and the Democrats is inevitably leading to a battle over which faction will control the Republican Party after the election. On one side are the Limbaugh shock-troops, the loud angry social conservatives that have dominated the base for 25 years. These people are completely embarrassing to the intellectual movement conservatives like David Brooks.

...Will the "kooks" take over the defeated Republican Party, with Sarah Palin as their Joan of Arc? If so, where would the "Buckley conservatives" go?
Worth the read
