THE MEDIA AND THE LEFT GO NUCLEAR

As a certifiable left-wing crazy, I just hope you're right about this one.

CAN CONSERVATIVES GOVERN?

I'm fairly liberal, but I have to agree with most of the things you say here. I am utterly baffled by the direction the conservative movement has taken in this country. Perhaps what happened is the temptation of power became too much. Conservatism has become very powerful by telling people you can have your cake and eat it too; we'll have tax cuts /and/ massive government spending. Bizarely enough, the democrats are now a better choice if your goal is a fiscally responsible government. Given the choice, I prefer the tax and spend party to the tax-cut and spend party. There's no such thing as a free lunch (and didn't that used to be a conservative saying?)

One other thing I'll throw in is the war in Iraq. Nation building is not a traditional conservative value, and of course Bush spoke out against it before becoming president. Yet under conservative leadership, this country has taken on a task of nation building greater than any we've seen since the end of the second world war.

I've never been a traditional conservative, but I sure do miss them.
