Reactions to a Manifesto
The righty blogs they picked are some of the saner ones; check out a Google Blog Search on my name to see how much hateful venom is being directed toward me by the right wing blogosphere — which, of course, completely validates the points in my article.
The Week quotes Jules Crittenden:
His explanation for his change of heart is thin, especially since he never says why he thinks liberals are the “sane, loving, rational” ones.
And that’s a very odd statement, since I’ve never written anything even remotely like that; this is why the term “straw man argument” was coined.
For the record, I still believe there are plenty of “sane, loving, rational” people who call themselves conservatives — but that doesn’t alter my opinion that the movement itself and the Republican Party has gone way, way off the rails. I’ve been documenting this dismaying derailment at LGF for the past year.
