DarnoKonrad: DrD'isInfotainment: I listened to that guy's argument, and tried to read between the lines and what I came up with is that he was commissioned by some CON ThinkTank to creat an impression other than reality because the Right in America is being exposed for what they are, which is are petty closet fascist and sharkers.

In the end I concluded that his argument was yet another game of 3 card monty brought to the listener by Cato,or Heritage, or Hoover or AEI or some other sad excuse for a "Think"Tank. Strange how we rarely hear such unabashed ideological drivel coming from the Left.

The Right's always screaming about the Liberal  LSM is just another Rovian technique of accusing to other of the sins you yourself are woefully guilt of. Conservatives today embrace Politics as a Dirty Business and revel in it, while Liberals claim, at least to still be  trying to solve societies problems... and today's"Conservatives" have a real problem with THAT.

Ever since that towering figure of GOP Intellection, Newt Gingrich used his so called PHD to CONvince GOPers that CONservatism is the New Radicalism the GOPers have been talking out of both sides of their assholes.

The real  backstory of the NPR piece is about the Right's  attempt at staunch the tide that is going out on Gingrich's so called radical Conservatism. A tide that should have gone out twenty years ago if not for  Rightward predisposition of the MSM. Call it the CNN effect or Gannet effect or NewsCorp effect.

I waffle between whether these people believe the nonsense they divine from their own bellybutton, or if it's purposely obfuscating.  One thing is for sure however, there's lots of money in touring the right wing 'intellectual' circuit.   NPR certainly takes it seriously.

Well hey, basic capitalism.  Scarcity increases value.

It's always Burke's fault. I even heard he and Samuel murdered Chancellor Gorkon.
