Frum Sees Writing on the Wall: Dreams of "New Majority" Created in His Image and Likeness Dashed

David Frum, self-appointed arbiter of who belongs in the "big tent" and who doesn't, has changed the name of his virtually-unread-except-by-liberals blog from the wishful thinking of "New Majority" to the alliterative (and self-promoting) but otherwise mundane "Frum Forum":
... We consulted at length with a brilliant friend of mine, one of the nation’s leading experts on branding. Her advice was direct and powerful: ”Nobody knows what the ‘next majority’ will look like. Maybe President Obama will be re-elected and your hopes of building a new modernized Republican majority will go unrealized for a long time to come.” In any event, she continued, whether Republicans return to majority or remain in minority status, the world of internet political commentary is a world built around individual personalities. Think DrudgeReport, HuffingtonPost,, Breitbart.TV. Her advice: Put my name on the thing...
Yeah, whatever. More likely no one is buying the load of crap you're selling. A "New Majority" made up of a bunch of people acting just like the same John McCain (i.e. Democrat-lite) who just last year lost the Presidency to a freshman Senator who had never accomplished anything of note? Gee, Frum, I wonder why more people aren't just all over your concept for "re-making" the GOP?

I can't wait to do the happy-happy joy-joy dance tomorrow after Hoffman wins, perhaps for no greater reason than it will show up idiots like Frum. But good luck with that site of yours there Davey boy - I'm sure that no matter the name, you will retain you position at the top of list of pet "right-wing" bloggers most beloved by liberals. Which is something, I guess.

Hilarious for this reason as well. I just don't envision this "Frum Republican" movement having mass appeal.

Yeah, Chris, I'm guessing that Frum 3.0, complete with a rebrand of the rebrand is in the near future.
