Kept Conservatives: Prominent Right-Wingers Who Sound Very Liberal

Your article describes John Boehner to a "T". He is the very epitome of the "loyal opposition" with no will or loyalty. We see that he is stripping true conservatives from any position of power in any committees and he always gives in on the debt, amongst other things. He reminds me of REM's "Exhuming McCarthy".

We’ve had a wide variety of conservative: the neo-cons, the paleo-cons and most recently the crunchy cons. Have you ever noticed how many of the most prominent conservative voices in America sound more like liberals? I have, and I believe they are in class all their own: they have a special mission and fit a particular profile.

They are what I like to call ‘kept cons.’ They are ‘kept’ by liberals in that kept cons generally work for liberal institutions and seem to fill the role of token conservative; they write conservative columns for national liberal newspapers...
