That's Entertainment!

Not great entertainment, I admit, but if you've already seen that Hollywood Squares episode 40 times and can't get past the static to tune in Mother Malloy's Knitting and Needlework Hour on the radio, it will do:

After abandoning one sinking ship for another last fall, while still threatening to "always call myself a REAGAN Libertarian," Wayne Allyn Root has apparently made the break complete.

There are lots of ways to describe The Conservative Caucus, but "libertarian" isn't one of them. The organization opposes free trade, supports the idiotic border fence and other money-wasting federal make-work programs pursuant to unconstitutional regulation of immigration, stands for perpetual continuation of marriage apartheid (and other codifications of bigotry in law), and once compared Root's hero, Ronald Reagan, to Neville Chamberlain.

Fortunately, Root has made great progress in scrubbing the word "libertarian" from his ever-evolving arsenal of narcissistic self-description. The only remnant of it in the TCC press release is a reference to his embarrassing (to virtually all involved) outing as the Libertarian Party's 2008 vice-presidential candidate. These days, instead of a "REAGAN Libertarian," he's a "conservative patriot."

Hmmm ... I wonder if Root, whose business background is in gambling, has noticed yet that The Conservative Caucus considers gamblers  -- along with government employees, welfare recipients and such -- to be "wealth absorbers" rather than "wealth producers?"
