Whiskey Fire covers the Jonah Goldberg scandal, in which Goldberg doesn't bow to Rush. Goldberg has his own Rush: Glenn Beck. Rush's power came from connecting the ordinary money-worshipping Republican to his elite masters, but the elites don't need them anymore. The Republican party has a new Rush, who will be the conduit between them and their new constitutes: the deeply oblivious crank.
The Republican elite killed their party, along with the economy. It was as disposable as the people who worked for it. Amazing.
