David Frum Reports from the Front Line of the Republican Civil War
Former Bush speech writer David Frum, writing at the Daily Beast (here), tries to save the Republicans from their own worst excesses (namely Rush Limbaugh). Smart guy that he is, Frum must realize his effort is futile. Most likely, it will only stoke the flames of an internecine war - between neo-cons v. paleo-cons; thinkers v. prayers; nose-breathers v. mouth-breathers; libertarians v. theocrats; true (Burkean) conservatives v. radical culture warriors posing as conservatives - that has been simmering for decades.
