Because it’s harder to get farther outside the mainstream than Murphy. As a June profile of Murphy noted: Murphy… has called secession “as American as apple pie” and spoke at a pro-nullification conference in Waukesha earlier this year.

As hit jobs go, this is pretty run-of-the-mill, except for its length and the fact that it is the cover story of the once-prestigious New Republic: The Unelectable Whiteness of Scott Walker: A journey through the poisonous, racially divided world that produced a Republican star. The unsubtlety of the headline pretty much gives you the…
Scott Walker is powerful and threatening to Democrats because he stands firm on conservative principles, that’s why he is targeted for destruction, and racial politics is the way they do it.

The Sykes-Belling split, involving two leading conservatives, illustrates the fact that the controversy over this budget measure can’t be defined in partisan or ideological terms, [Center Director] Hall said. Via Belling, Sykes spar over Republican vote on journalism center @ JS No Quarter Blog.
The GOP’s budget motion was a vindictive attack on a journalistic operation on ideological grounds. Does that sound slightly familiar? At a time when conservatives should be embracing government restraint, the motion combines some of the worst aspects of the IRS and DOJ scandals – using government to punish those perceived as political enemies combined…
