The failure of conservatism

Kevin Drum takes up the discussion of the conservative blogosphere that because George Bush is such an incompetent failure, that he can't be a conservative. Kevin, with the help of several others, shows just how ridiculous that claim is.

The money quote is "Conservatives cannot govern well for the same reason that vegetarians cannot prepare a world-class boeuf bourguignon: If you believe that what you are called upon to do is wrong, you are not likely to do it very well." Is that a valid analogy? If so, is that a valid conclusion?
