Dispatch from the GOP booze cruise

in Uncategorized by

New York magazine has a fascinating piece on the National Review magazine’s ‘Post Election Cruise 2012’ in which roughly 600 Republicans took a vacation and tried to figure out what went wrong at the voting booths.

“This was a phenomenon that was common on the cruise — the conservative pundits and columnists from the National Review attempting to gently disinter their followers from unhelpful conservative propaganda. For people who believe in the truth of works like Dreams From My Real Father, a conspiracy-­theory documentary that argues that Obama’s real father was a communist propagandist who turned Obama into a socialist Manchurian Candidate, this could be difficult work.”
