Rich Lowry can do better than this
The National Review is a well-written, insightful and fair publication.
Rich Lowry's current article is none of those things. The things j. morgan said in his sleep when he was 4 are more intelligent. There's this:
"After the 2004 election, then-New Republic editor Peter Beinart wrote an influential article calling on liberal hawks basically to purge the antiwar zealots from the party. Instead, the anti-war zealots are conducting a purge of the liberal hawks."
I used to like to play the Protoss in Starcraft, because one of their units was an anti-war zealot. You'd get a group of those together and they were unstoppable. And this beautiful turn of phrase:
"[Ned] Lamont is a straight Deaniac, not just in his opposition to the war, but in his demographic profile: white, well-off and highly educated."
Yeah...white, educated, well-off people who oppose the war...I call them "straight Deaniacs" too...I think everyone does...anti-war zealots, they are, whose burning, all-consuming zeal to oppose war leads them to...change their minds about things...
This just goes to show that not all X's are Y's.
