The battle has been joined! Conservatism fights for its very soul today over at The Corner, where first Pantload and then Human Stain set the table for K-Lo's final assault on wingnut apostate-come-lately Kathleen Parker:
...I wonder if after some time away from her e-mail and newfound attentions she'd be using some of the same words she's been using lately about many of the buyers of her book.For the record, dear K-Lo, I think you'll find that it's a negative indicator.
Maybe she would. She's someone I know and love dearly but I won't ever pretend to know her or anyone's mind. But I do know she is smarter than her column recently has suggested.
And by smarter I am not using conservatism as a litmus test for intelligence, for the record.
Note: Deborah Howell is sure to find Parker's feints at conversion doubleplusungood.
Update: Kevin Drum has more on Jonah and the "oogedy-boogedy" GOP.
