Why does the GOP have a problem with conservatives?

by Todd Starnes / Fox News, Guest Columnist |

NEW YORK (Christian Examiner) -- Republicans can't win national elections without conservatives," says FOX News commentator Todd Starnes, in his latest American Dispatch. "Establishment Republicans want our votes, not our values."

Starnes reacts to the National Review accusing former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee of trying to emulate Larry the Cable Guy.

"The fact is, the down-home values of the gun-toting, Bible-clinging, cast-iron skillet cooking crowd are just not welcome in the hoity-toity world of martini-sipping, country club Republican rubes," Starnes said.
