The Conservative Soul - Brooks vs. Sullivan

Conservative Cagematch! Sully v. Brooksie!

If only more people who dared to call themselves 'conservative' these days could express themselves as intelligently as these two -- in spite of how I may disagree with their conclusions and assertions -- without bumper sticker chanting and shouting and parroting of catchphrases from radio blowhards, I'd listen more to what they say.

Sullivan, though, succinctly and deftly, disproves the belief that George W. Bush (or any in his crowd) was a conservative. He brought no real tax breaks, spent money wildly and left us and future generations with a debt that won't go away for a long time, if ever.

It's good to finally (after 16 years) have some grownups in the White House.
