Those classy conservatives...

Rush Limbaugh:

“USA Today’s got a poll: ‘Do you think something’s wrong about the firing of eight US attorneys?’ 72% said yes. 72% of the American people, a bunch of blithering idiots who have no idea what they’re talking about, but yet they voted, so these polls matter.”

Michael Savage:

"All right, I'm going to show you boys in Hollywood and you girls in New York City that I do exist. But since you're very hard-headed, stiff-necked people, and you don't really believe that I exist because you've gotten away with everything you've done all your life without any repercussions, I'm going to show you I exist in a way that you can't believe." Down came the World Trade Center towers. That was God speaking."

If you're a Republican, these are your voices. I know people have argued that Bush and the neocons, as well their mouthpieces in the media, are not what the GOP is really about, but they have been the public face and power base of your Republican party since at least 1994. And I didn't hear any Republican moderates trying to temper their own back when the Permanent Majority looked like a good idea.
