When I say that the political and media (one can hardly say “intellectual”) leadership of the Red team is dominated by fools, charlatans, and lunatics, that’s hardly news. But when Stephen Bainbridge says the same thing, we’re in man-bites-dog territory. Bainbridge isn’t holding back:
These days … the most prominent so-called conservatives are increasingly fit only to be cast for the next Dumb and Dumber sequel. They’re dumb and crazy.
I’m less nostalgic than Steve is for Richard John Neuhaus, William F. Buckley, and Ronald Reagan. But they were grown-ups. Sarah Palin, not so much.
