Rejecting “Brain-dead Partisanship”: Frumpian for “Principles are SO Passé.”


Sir Robert of Belvedere notes that our old buddy David Frum has started yet another medium o’ mediocrity…  “No Labels”.

Stanley Kurtz does what National Review ought to have done years ago.

…which reminds me…

Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people? – Ronald Reagan, CPAC 1975

I have no quarrel with partisanship, meselfs.

    People who go around with a heart-boner for bipartisanship are usually either concern-troll liberals or wayward conservatives.

    Incredible how Reagan has already faced down the same things we’re facing today, and at the time he spoke it out loud in his timeless way, giving us this wonderfully rich and varied library of wisdoms.

    Read that DeMint will not support the “deal.” It’s getting interesting.

    Hey Maggie – That’s an interesting perspective. I have to start looking at folks like DeMint… and Pence and Bachmann and Rubio. Isn’t it looking as if Reagan had a lot of babies? There is a bumper crop of genuine constitutional libertarian-conservatives sprouting. If only Ronnie were here to see them!

    Yeah, so DeMint smells blood!? Good. Obama sounds panicky.

    Frum is a self-important prick. He has elected himself the arbiter of what should and shouldn’t be said and by whom. Nice work if you can get it. hehe

    Nice work indeed! I find Mark Levin or Nick Gillespie – or any of the great bloggers in the sidebar —–>
    to be more interesting.

    Gillespie is by far my favorite movement libertarian. I think it’s mainly because he doesn’t come off as some hate-filled radical such as the Libertarian party is famous for lately. I really like Mark Levin, but I can’t stand to listen to him. He’s too much of a downer. I can read him all day long, though.

    Yup. Yup, amen, yup…
