Prop 8, Michelle Obama, Ground Zero mosque: Are conservatives basically the Honky Party?

Last week, Judge Vaughn Walker‘s decision setting aside Prop 8 in California unleashed plenty of grumbling from rightbloggers. As it involves gay people, this was to be expected.

There was also rightblogger outrage, also expected, that Michelle Obama and her daughters had a swell, privately-funded vacation in Spain, instead of maybe just going down to Wildwood, New Jersey or something else better befitting their station.

And of course rightbloggers were not-unexpectedly enraged that Muslims were planning a mosque in a spot in downtown Manhattan where you could almost see Ground Zero.

All this raises a question: Is conservatism in America today basically a white people’s movement?
