Salon's Brian Beutler: The GOP is Losing in the Government Shutdown, and is on the Verge of a Modern "Gettysburg"

Brian Beutler's column at Salon is linked below.

Brian Beutler: The "Neo-Confederates" are on the brink of a "Gettysburg"

"Conservatives see Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz and imagine a national groundswell is forming. They do not perceive two widely loathed politicians who bespeak the House GOP’s total isolation so exquisitely. They believe the latest small crowd of white conservatives protesting the closure of war monuments (which would be open had they not shut down the government) will upend the whole debate and reverse the tide of public opinion against them."
