No, no, no, Leon, don't you see? Andrew is a true conservative! If he believes it, it is automatically the conservative position!
To Andrew's liberal admirers, I suggest you go back to the Daily Dish archives from 2001/2003/2004. His thuggish hawkishness from the time was breathtaking. Don't forget he accused us of planning to mount a fifth column!
Why anyone respects this clown is beyond me. I cannot believe a magazine as serious as the Atlantic hosts his blog. Or perhaps the "face of the day" is just too stimulating to pass up?
