For a conservative, what could this mean to you?

I have found that the GOP is more corrupt than ever. Is that cooruption getting to the base that elected it?

Pie Eyed needs a forum.

The question of what effect the current corruption scandals will have on the base will be evidenced in the midterm elections. In general this, among other things (government spending, terri schiavo, harriet miers) has dampened the base's enthusiasm. That said, the "base" is a collection of competing ideologies. Right now, those that are probably the most disgusted with the Republican party are the traditional conservative contituency, small government conservatives (of which I consider myself one) and libertarians. Through the prism of small government conservativism the Abramoff scandal is likely to be viewed as symptomatic of the Republicans unfortunate embrace of big government.
