A fascinating CNN segment with right wing pundits David Frum and Jennifer Rubin slamming Glenn Beck and disowning him from the conservative movement (via Cesca):
Commentators like Frum and Rubin are acutely the malaise within the Republican party and understand it cannot survive in its current incarnation. The fact that the Glenn Beck/Sarah Palin/Michele Bachmann/Tea Party axis are at the forefront of Republican ideology is deeply damaging to conservatism in the long run. Crazy can only last so long, and conservatives are finally beginning to understand that it might be beneficial in the short term, but disastrous down the line.
