Did The Donald Just Shank the Tea Party?

I've read lots of stuff from conservatives, which bemoans the supposed fact that the Republicans haven't tried to elect a "true conservative" as President.

Well, now they have tried. And they couldn't even persuade their own voters to back him.

But they'll surely start wailing that The Donald didn't fight fair or some such nonsense, and that they still await the One True Conservative to pull the Sword of Reagan from the stone and thus restore whatever it is they think needs restoring.

Ballocks.

Cruz was a conservative?

Huh, I didn't get the memo.

AFAIK, there are no conservatives running the cycle.

If not Cruz, then who's a "true conservative"? It's not as though they can dig up Torquemada.

I think part of the problem is with the labels. As in there is very little that is "conservative" about extreme right wing ideology. The idea of "conserving" norms and traditions seems to have been left up to the Democrats, who for all of their well documented faults, are at least not trying to tear down the last century's social progress.
As for the "conservatives", they trot out the same "true Scotsman" fallacy every time they lose, and sadly, about all they lose these days is the presidency. Everywhere else they seem to win a lot. At least I live in California where they are politically constrained to Orange County and the rural areas.
