    I canceled my subscription to The National Review when William F. wrote a piece calling for the tatooing of anyone with AIDS.

    BOOM!

    Hear that?

    That's the Republican Party imploding.

    I got out of that room when McCan't picked Palin.

    I'm sure you meant to say Neoconservativism. The Republican Party has left the Republicans with the neoconservative movement. Conservatives are now quite rare amongst Republicans, with most becoming Independents or Libertarians. Obama actually doesn't have a conservative bone in his body, so Buckley's son is obviously not a conservative.

    There are people who are principled on both sides of the aisle. Big.

    The National Review is often(or at least used to be, I stopped reading it decades ago) at odds with mainstream Republicans in Congress on some policy or issue.
