What's the evidence that Mr. Garland is a conservative?

What would convince you?

Wait, I see your point. Throughout the piece, he only identifies himself as the target demographic of the GOP, never specifically as a "conservative." Got it.

Good eye, rich bachelor -- Garland clearly doesn't identify as a conservative, only a prosperous caucasian. More hackery from Constant. And yet he wants Republicans to become "smarter."

Could Constant please post his SAT scores when we get a second?

"when you're in a position where you only hear what you want to hear, you eventually wind up living in an alternate reality."

Paul Constant certainly isn't guilty of this, MSNBC certainly isn't guilty of this, and Obama supporters are most certainly not guilty of this. It’s exclusively a Fox News problem, got it!

Anyways, what did the Republicans have to gain by Romney's victory? Nothing. They get everything they want from Obama, as he pisses his alleged agenda away to "compromise" with Republicans. The “compromise” doesn’t exist, and the filibuster isn’t a real problem, Obama has the exact same agenda: cut all forms of welfare. Republicans are going to continue to loose until they embrace Libertarianism again. Simply shouting “More War, Less Government” isn’t fooling anyone.

The talking heads guarding the inhabitants of Bullsh*t Mountain from rejoining the world of the sane just won't budge an inch will they? Fox News is a propaganda machine which dumbs down America by the day through disinformation and their slanted agendas. See their anchors spewing forth feces from their mouths in my visual homage to the network on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10…

Actually, the original posts from Mr. Garland stated the he and his wife were Republicans that voted Democrat this year (and he gave the reasons why). However, the website has been closed.

Yeah, I just don't see that. His Twitter feed indicates he grew up in Vermont, and this followup says that he voted for the libertarian:
