Extreme-Right Groups Launch Joint Call To Return The GOP To "True Conservatism"

Doubtlessly inspired by the anti-gay Manhattan Declaration, today a coalition of extreme-right and Christianist groups launched the Mount Vernon Statement, a call for a "return to Constitutionally-based conservatism."
A Constitutional conservatism unites all conservatives through the natural fusion provided by American principles. It reminds economic conservatives that morality is essential to limited government, social conservatives that unlimited government is a threat to moral self-government, and national security conservatives that energetic but responsible government is the key to America’s safety and leadership role in the world. A Constitutional conservatism based on first principles provides the framework for a consistent and meaningful policy agenda.
The statement was unveiled in Washington DC today in a pre-CPAC ceremony that was a Who's Who In Crazytown.
On hand to unveil the Mount Vernon Statement include former Attorney General Ed Meese, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist, Concerned Women for America president Wendy Wright, Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness, and David Keene, who heads up the American Conservative Union, which is sponsoring this week's Conservative Political Action Conference in the nation's capital.
The Mount Vernon Statement is part of the Tea Party movement to "reclaim" the GOP in the name of the people who really, really, know how to hate. Note how the signers' names appear in Declaration Of Independence font.
