Is it too much to hope that conservatives really are starting to come around?
Graham dismissed Rush Limbaugh as someone who "makes hundreds of millions of dollars being able to talk on the radio." And of today’s hottest conservative/libertarian phenomenon he said, "Glenn Beck is not aligned with any party as far as I can tell. He’s aligned with cynicism, and there’s always been a market for cynicism."

But perhaps the most devastating critique of the vociferous right — from the right — comes from David Brooks, resident conservative columnist at The New York Times.

Referring to them as "media mavens who claim to represent a hidden majority but who in fact represent a mere niche — even in the Republican Party."
