I wonder if John Podhoretz intended his column lambasting the anti-Boehner rebels in the House to imply a critique of the debt-ceiling-hostage strategy? The implication is plainly there, whether intended or not.
Of course lots of stuff about the contemporary Right is, as Podhoretz says, “the opposite of conservative.” It’s good to know the he and his Murdochized colleagues are finally starting to notice.
Podhoretz’s father helped lead the neo-conservative revolt against the excesses (which I think they exaggerated) of 60s-70s liberalism. Who will lead the counter-revolt against the excesses of the theocrat-plutocrat-bigot coalition?
