The looming Republican war

Andrew Sullivan prevê tempos muito agitados entre os Republicanos:

The current tussle in the Congress over the budget is just a precursor to what I think will be outright Republican civil war after this election.

(...)

Whether the coming civil war is about who lost the election, or who will exploit the victory, it's going to be nasty and enduring. No single party can be both for individual liberty and for theologically-based social policy; both for fiscal balance and drunken-sailor spending; both for interventionism abroad and against moralism in foreign policy. The incoherence is just too deep, the tensions too strained. And with the war on terror itself a point of contention among conservatives, geo-politics will not be able to keep the coalition in one piece.
