Judge Posner Disappointed in GOP

The ABA Journal has an article on the recently stated views of Federal Judge Richard Posner, titled:  "Judge Posner Critic of ‘Goofy’ Trend in GOP, Says He’s Becoming Less Conservative".  Here is the lede:
Judge Richard Posner is a big fan of two conservative icons:  President Ronald Reagan and economist Milton Friedman.

Posner owes his job on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to an appointment by Reagan.  But he tells National Public Radio he’s becoming less enamored with the Republican Party.

Over the last 10 years, Posner said, there has been “a real deterioration in conservative thinking” that is leading people—himself included—to re-examine their own beliefs.  "I've become less conservative since the Republican Party started becoming goofy," he told NPR.
So, is he becoming less Conservative or is he saying that the centroid of Conservatism has moved to a new and unhappy place?  If he is saying the second, it might be like the Democratic Party in 1972, which seemed to move, move a long ways, from the space occupied by people such as Hubert H Humphrey, Henry "Scoop" Jackson and Shirley Chisholm.

And worse, bad spelling.

I really liked my proposed ticket in '72 of Jackson and Chisholm.  But, no, they went with George McGovern and whoever and crashed and burned.  Dick Nixon won, again.

Looked it up.  Thomas Eagleton, replaced in mid-stride by Sargent Shriver.
