Laura Ingraham hosted Kevin Williamson.
Williamson spoke about the three peaks of conservatism, noting that Americans are not much different than in the 1950s, except favoring gay marriage. He said more are being identified as independent.
Williamson pointed to the states as the proof as laboratories of conservatism. He said Republicans aren't thought of as trustworthy. Ingraham and Williamson agreed that Republicans have to come to terms with the errors of the Bush administration with overspending and two unpopular wars. Williamson said the governors have been willing to rein in spending versus GOP legislators. He cited Rick Perry of Texas, Mary Fallon of Oklahoma as models for fiscal responsibility.
