Politically Speaking: GOP looking for conservative candidate

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

Tuned in conservative talk radio yesterday, and heard a caller
bemoaning how there's no candidate a true Republican konservative kan
kommit (sorry, Krusty) to in the presidential race. It's a topic
that's been raised a lot in the last year, and the more I think about
it, it's misguided. Thus far Republicans have failed to embrace three
guys with pretty good conservative cred. Recall Sam Brownback? When
the U.S. senator from Kansas -- red state "What's The Matter With
Kansas?" Kansas -- announced his presidential bid, I figured he'd be a
formidable candidate. The first time I covered Brownback in the city,
it was a closed affair in which an evangelical Christian leader held
forth on the role of religion in American history.
