Frank Rich thinks the right is composed entirely of big-gov religious fanatics.

The reason he is deluded about the Republicans overplaying their hand is that this kind of tolerance for opposing views and constant debate is what makes the right so strong in America.

I mean, I agree with Rich on censorship and Schiavo, and don't like all the recent spending. But he is crazy if he thinks even-more-marginalized views will win in 2006.

Also, South Park has always made fun of everyone, but tend to be more libertarian, so Rich's claim that the Republicans are the new Liberals is ridiculous.

I think "big-gov religious fanatics" is a fair characterization of President George Bush Jr., Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, and House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. You're correct that those men are so powerful in part because they enjoy the support of constituents who dislike their accomplishments.
