If anyone has pandered too the worst of the Republican right, it is Gingrich. Let me restate that.
Of those those who have pandered to the worst of the Republican right, Gingrich is among the worst, and he continues to do so with his current attacks on Karl Rove.
Karl Rove, has, of course, considerable pandering experience himself, but he has pandered to the elitist Republicans with money to a greater extent that he has pandered to the "angry white men" of which Lindsey Graham says that there are no longer enough.
Irrespective, Republicans are not dealing with real issues, or with reality itself--either Gingrich or Rove, and their attacks upon each other, and upon the factions within the Republican Party for whom they aspire to speak, and even Gingrich's casting of the issues as matters of Demography rather than of issues, illustrates that the Republican Party is dealing, and for the foreseeable future can be expected to continue to deal with recriminations and personal attacks, rather than with ideas and issues.
