I hear you Ryan. Conservative politicians bear the lion's share of the responsibility for the cheapening of the conservative 'brand', but we can't let conservative thinkers off the hook either. I wasn't being snarky when I said "sad". I really do miss the intelligent conservative commentators of yore. Gone are the William F. Buckleys, and O'Rourke is all but gone as well. In their place we have what, Dinesh D'Souza, Mark Steyn, Jonah Goldberg? Yeesh. I hope O'Rourke is directing some of his bitterness toward them as well, and not just the rubes who implemented conservative policy. (Someone called them the 'Mayberry Machiavellis', I can't think of a more apt description.)
