Ever since (and even before) Republicans got their butts handed to them last October, conservatives were clamoring for leadership. It was frustrating to have a huge group of people who share most of the same ideals, but no national leadership for us. We had Palin, but it's hard to get excited by a VP nominee when their running mate is on a separate page ideologically. And now that Obama, Pelosi, Reid, et al are bringing this country down like the Titanic, people are still hungry for conservative leadership. A main reason's because the majority of Republican leadership couldn't find their ass with both hands and a flashlight---which is how you have fiascos like the NY-23 race---and part of the reason's because little of the media reports on things conservatives are actually doing.
Little by little, slowly but surely, we're starting to see some conservative Republicans step up. I think it's important to point out a few examples. An obvious one is Joe Wilson, if for no other reason than conservatives want someone who's unafraid to call a spade a spade, and Wilson did it. A lesson to other Republicans: if you'll speak up, you'll find you'll have a lot of people behind you. If you don't believe me, look at the donations this guy's receiving.
One from my state is Senator Jim Inhofe, who's leading the fight against the Crap and Tax bill. You also have Mike Rogers who has done a good job in speaking out against health care legislation:
Finally, a tip of the hat to Congressman Steve King for laying into NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for being a spineless wimp and giving into the PC crowd.
Good job, fellas.
