Long ago in our callow days we thought that American conservatism was the Christian social philosophy of Russell Kirk and Richard Weaver. We did not know that American conservatism was really Trotskyites, oil barons, Likudniks, Dr. Strangeloves, amoral political technicians, fringe Protestant loonies, and ignorant, vulgar media demagogues. We should have known. In retrospect, it was inevitable, given the quality of the human material available in the Republican Party. – Â Dr. Clyde Wilson at Chronicle Magazine
I don’t agree with the “fringe Protstant loonies” part, but otherwise priceless.
