Is the conservative media establishment suddenly getting less conservative?
In the wake of Mitt Romney’s stinging defeat on Election Day, some of the right’s strongest voices are—dare I use the word?—moderating a bit.
Now there’s nothing wrong with pundits and politicians rethinking their positions after a period of soul-searching. Republicans have, after all, lost the popular vote in five of the last six elections, and the presidency in four of them. What was obvious to many analysts—that the party was driving off a demographic cliff by alienating Hispanics, women and gays—is now staring its members in the face.
Still, it’s surprising how fast all this is happening.
