KATIE COURIC: As Politico reported, there’s growing concern among some GOP leaders that controversial commentators and far-right conservatives have hijacked the message. People like Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin appeal to the base – and you certainly need that base to win elections.

Note: Fringe according to Couric means any wildly popular conservative who can stir the base to action.

Last time I checked neither Rush nor Palin bombed a clinic, killed a cop, or swore allegiance to the communist party.
