Former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell warned Sunday that ideological conservatives, particularly radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, had gained a hold over the Republican Party that risked driving the GOP into an extended exile from power.

In a sign of continued division within GOP ranks, it wasn't the Democrat currently residing in the White House who drew most of the fire Saturday at a conference of conservative activists--it was his Republican predecessor.

George W. Bush now owns the Republican Party. He has brought it to the promised land. For the first time in nearly 50 years, Republicans control everything -- the White House, the House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, even the Supreme Court, which made Bush president.

It's hard for a lot of people, particularly on the right, to recognize that the conservative movement's problems are mostly problems of success. The Republican Party's problems are much more recognizable as the problems of failure, including the failure to recognize the limits of that movement's success. American conservatism began as a kind of intellectual hobbyist's group with little hope of changing the broader society. Albert Jay Nock, the cape-wearing libertarian intellectual - he called himself a "philosophical anarchist" - who inspired a very young William F. Buckley Jr., argued that political change was impossible because the masses were rubes, goons, fools or sheep, victims of the eternal tendency of the powerful to exploit the powerless.
