Politico: "The tension between the profit- and ratings-driven right -- call them entertainment-based conservatives -- and conservatives focused on ideas (the thinkers) and winning (the operatives) has never been more evident."

"The latter group worries that too many on the right are credulous about the former."

"The egghead-hack coalition believes that the entertainment-based conservatives create an atmosphere which enables flawed down-ballot candidates, creates a cartoonish presidential primary, blocks needed policy reforms and generally leave an odor on the party which turns off swing voters."
