I must tell you which people I most contemn right now, here in America: conservatives who will not vote for Bush, or who have "reservations," because he's not pure enough. "Oh, his spending, oh, his steel tariffs [which were imposed for like two seconds]!" Come on: There's a war on. Don't these people know it? Will there ever be a weightier contrast between the two major candidates? Will the stakes ever be higher? I mean, this is 1864-ish.
I must say I retch at these conservatives, about whom I read. (I'm not talking about the anti-war, anti-Bush conservatives: I'm talking about the ones who are for the war, but who draw back from support of Bush because, like just about every politician necessarily he's impure.) They seem to me, above all, immature: to misunderstand democracy, to reject politics, to give off whiffs of totalism.
Donald Sensing has a far better grasp of the situation than Rich, and he manages to present his point without the condescension. Nordlinger obviously does NOT get it.
Yes, I'm still a blog for Bush, but only because of the WOT. The M-F bill was and is an abomination. If it doesn't become the most flouted law in the history of this country-and I'm including Prohibition here- then this country will deserve what it gets. Now that a little piece of the 1st Amendment has been chipped away, more are sure to follow.
Update: Not surprisingly, Spoons feels a little less love towards Nordlinger.
