Our friend Clark Stooksbury is now posting at TAC and wonderful post about how some (older) conservatives are critizing other (younger) conservatives for wishing McCain and the Republicans’ demise in order light out for the territories and evacuate D.C. for the hinterlands i.e The Wilderness.
Well, as paleos, since we’ve born, reared and lived out whole lives in the wilderness, I guess allÂ one can say is: Welcome and enjoy your stay. HopefullyÂ youÂ might learn something out here and hopefully you can take us with you when you go back, presumably if we’re not all retired or dead by then. The air is fresh and clean, but it does get pretty dark around here so bring plenty of matches for the campfires we can all huddle around as comrades.
Larison has a good post on the The Wilderness as well, reminding us that even though Republicans and establishment conservatives may very well be in a theoretical “wilderness” as far as being out of power, their offices are going to still right down the street from Capitiol Hill and The White House. Maybe if they really wanted to be in the “wilderness” they would relcoate to their home towns or in some Midwestern or Southern town like the Rockford Institute for example.
