Adam Serwer (Mother Jones) and Daniel Foster (National Review Online)

On Adamize, Dan and Adam consider the tension between the unpopular national GOP and its far more popular state and local leaders. Dan says there’s no market for GOP solutions at the national level, and Adam argues that’s a direct result of conservative success in enforcing ideological discipline. Is Chris Christie fulfilling a forgotten part of Reagan’s legacy? They discuss the controversy over GOProud, a gay conservative group, being barred from CPAC. Adam argues that John Roberts, as an ideological descendant of Barry Goldwater, shouldn’t get to pull down the curtain on the Voting Rights Act, while Dan says that we should all want the law to no longer be necessary.
