Commentary of the Day

Alenda Lux, on Abe Greenwald:

If we’re going to rebuild the Reagan Majority, various types of conservatives are going to have to accept aspects of the other types of conservatives. With the exception of some (like the Huckabee types), social conservatives are willing to accept fiscal conservatism, and often are fiscal conservatives themselves. The top ranked Senators and Congressmen on the Club for Growth’s rating charts all got 100% from Right to Life. Those social cons who don’t practice fiscal conservatism generally do so not because of a principled objection to it (Huckabee) but because they’re power hungry. That hardly can be blamed on social conservatism.
