Re: Roundup


The Canada story is so absurd. It would be equivalent to a mob protection racket if we were charging Canada for the missile defense. "The Ambassador" has the right comic book villain ring to it.

Well the really interesting question is when does the anschluss get proposed?

I don't like MattY. He was a war monger for Bush in Iraq, now repeats the Iran nuke-program claims unquestioningly (last I checked, and I *don't* check). It's not just the wars, either.

Anywho, now MattY asks us to use Jonah Goldberg's analysis of the right. JG, of course, is entirely unbiased and a man of the purest moral character.

"anti-state" and "anti-left?"

There are different factions, and Bush is the head of the Christian faction. Other factions include the Libbos, the Xenophobes/"Nativists"(Buchanan,Tancredo,Rohrbacher), old racists and old anti-communists, numerous bamboozled people, and some number of ex-leftists and left-haters.

Is simplification really going to help?

What I really know is that the Christo-Rightists have ascended to primacy within the party. Who is the Sistani of the American Religious Right (for certainly the Taliban and UIA were/are the traditionalist moralizers of their own countries)? That is an interesting question.

Coe? (Nat'l Prayer Breakfasts)

I don't think its Olasky (author of Compassionate Conservatism (2000, forward by GW Bush))




It's not a speciality of mine. Perhaps there is no single leader, and they all have various influence in varying regional and cultural zones.
