The ubiquitous opiner Justice Antonin Scalia now insults Hispanics and blacks, as he recently insulted gays while voting rights and gay rights are pending before the court. Then the ubiquitous Dick Morris, sounding like Fredo Corleone, offers a plan to "take down" President Obama. Has Morris read the Ryan budget? Meanwhile the ubiquitous Grover Norquist appears to call Ronald Reagan a "rat head in a coke bottle" because Reagan raised taxes, while the ubiquitous Sen. Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzThe Hill's Morning Report — Sponsored by PhRMA — Immigration drama grips Washington Senate Gang of Four to meet next week on immigration Live coverage: High drama as hardline immigration bill fails, compromise vote delayed MORE (R-Texas), in his campaign to fully destroy the GOP brand, insults Sen.

Regarding the conservative crack-up, can you believe that CPAC honors the ubiquitous birther Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpTom Arnold claims to have unreleased 'tapes' of Trump Cohen distances himself from Tom Arnold, says they did not discuss Trump US military indefinitely suspends two training exercises with South Korea MORE and insults the most popular national Republican, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie? The CPAC convention shows just how far conservatives remain from the American mainstream. CPAC even gives a bad name to ubiquity, seeming to offer a greatest-hits album that recycles those Republicans most responsible for recent victories of Democrats.

The Ryan budget shows just how little Republicans have learned from losing so many elections.

The Cruz phenomen shows just how much the GOP needs to find a way to put him a closet before he turns conservatism into a national joke. Are the uninformed legal opinings of  Cruz a secret plan to give the Harvard Law School, which taught him these D-minus legal theories, a bad name?

The Rand PaulRandal (Rand) Howard PaulGOP senators call for probe of federal grants on climate change Overnight Health Care — Presented by the Association of American Medical Colleges — Key ObamaCare groups in limbo | Opioids sending thousands of kids into foster care | House passes bill allowing Medicaid to pay for opioid treatments US watchdog: 'We failed' to stem Afghan opium production MORE phenomenon shows how much the Republican divisions have deepened and the conservative crack-up has continued. Republicans must put their holy war against Obama to the side while they wage holy wars against each other. The latest pits isolationist libertarians against neocon warriors. This will be ugly. Stay tuned.

As long as the right keeps doing what it keeps doing, the great conservative crack-up will bring two big winners: Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonHouse Judiciary Committee subpoenas FBI agent who sent anti-Trump texts Clapper: Trump was serious when he said he wants citizens to act like North Koreans do for Kim Hillary Clinton: Fundamental rights are 'under assault like never before' MORE and Nancy Pelosi.
