Well, Christopher Buckley had suggested conservatives needed one of those dark nights of the soul, and now, here we are. From Jonathan Martin’s blog:
Two days after next week’s election, top conservatives will gather at the Virginia weekend home of one of the movement’s most prominent members to begin a conversation about their role in the GOP and how best to revive a party that may be out of power at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue next year.
The meeting will include a “who’s who of conservative leaders — economic, national security and social,” said one attendee, who shared initial word of the secret session only on the basis of anonymity and with some details about the host and location redacted.
Dear readers, do not confuse this with The American Spectator‘s annual pigroast. Though shooting at things certainly helped made us feel better.
