The “Prince of Darkness” is paleo-conservative reporter Robert Novak and his reputation for inside-story scoops is legendary (see: Joe Wilson/Valerie Plame). His latest is the following:
John McCain’s team that is taking over the Republican Party has decided on Bobbie Greene Kilberg, a liberal Republican from Virginia long detested by conservatives, to run the party’s national convention in St. Paul, Minn., in August.
Kilberg, as an aide to President George H.W. Bush in 1990, promoted White House overtures to gay activists. She won an internal power struggle over gay politics with fellow Bush assistant R. Douglas Wead, who was fired as White House liaison to religious conservatives. When Kilberg appeared on television by McCain’s side the night of Feb. 12 after he won the Virginia primary, her presence was resented by conservatives as a sign of contempt for them.”
Conservatives, Wake up. We’ve been warning about this for more than a year. John McCain does not yet have the nomination, but the GOP Left has bequethed him the Party and this is what we (and Rush Limbaugh) said, from the beginning, he would do with it.
