Posner and the current GOP

Nina Totenberg has an interview with Judge Posner, in which he discusses how apart he feels from the current GOP and movement conservativism, which he describe as "goofy" and a "crowd of lunatics." Posner's public stance is comparable to Charles Fried's outspokenness on the individual mandate, suggesting that some of the older-guard Reagan-era conservative elites have not followed the GOP's sharp libertarian move.

I do not buy Posner's suggestion that the conservative criticism of Roberts is going to cause him to re-examine his positions. Roberts is not David Souter and, current noise notwithstanding, is not about to become David Souter.
