Seriously, what happened to you guys? Republicans used to be smart. Look at William Buckley.
R.I.P., alas, so it goes.
Who do we have to explain the finer points of conservative politics and world affairs from the right side of the spectrum today?
A doughboy and a clown, who shouts over anyone who disagrees with him (when he can't just hang up) and who uses snark, insult, and derision to build ideological walls around his party while appealing to the base prejudice and smug ignorance of his audience.
I dunno, maybe you like the guy? If so, how about sharing something in the comments that he's said that you find particularly truthful, virtuous, or inspiring.
Here's something Buckley said about the neoconservatives: "I think those I know, which is most of them, are bright, informed and idealistic, but that they simply overrate the reach of U.S. power and influence."
That seems charitable and fair to me. I wonder what he'd think if he turned on Fox News today? Or picked up a new copy of his once-intellectual National Review?
