Democrats generally have boring perverts. Bill Clinton might like a cigar that's been in Monica's vag, but Newt Gingrich probably like's them up a goat's. It's that extra English that they put on it.

He's not wrong about conservatism and the Republican party—tho naive in thinking that the essence of the party since Nixon was white resentment—but curious that he doesn't see the Democrats as being a repository of the kind of conservatism that he's looking for. There's this kneejerk assumption that the Democrats are FDR, LBJ, and McGovern.

Yeah, I liked that article as far as it goes, but it's hard not to read his description of a future conservative party and not conclude the Dems already got there.

I assumed that post was a joke. I didn't realize she is a conservative writer. Oof.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

So many self-described conservatives are so oblivious to the contradictions in their principles (and I use that term very charitably) because part of their schtick is overt hostility to any kind of intellectual rigour. Their beliefs are whatever they want at the moment, regardless of the greater significance underlying those desires. So, yeah, they'll seize upon tenets of Communism, Nazism, monarchism, libertarianism, and theocracy without any reflection on how these things might be problematic. You can't really argue with someone like that because it is, fundamentally, the worldview of an adolescent—I want what I want right now and I'll do anything I can to get it. No surprise that any serious conservative intellectuals no longer have a voice.
