It's official. Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee have been placed in the Conservatives "weirdness" box. The intellectual don of the right, George F. Will, acknowledged in the Washington Post that "the conservative party is indirectly injured" when popular conservatives like Gingrich and Huckabee don't "recoil" from outlandish comments made by the birthers and other groups who want to paint President Obama as an outsider.

Why is this important? Because it suggests that more responsible conservatives may finally be standing up to challenge "careless, delusional, egomaniacal, spotlight-chasing candidates" that "sensible American majority would never entrust a lemonade stand, much less nuclear weapons."

Pretty strong words.

Then again, George F. Will seems to understand the list of presidential candidates that Conservatives are staring at for 2012 ... and it's not pretty.
