Douthat the Faithful

If I were Susan I'd be pissed.

For now, no Republican leader projects a similar level of seriousness. Late in the Bush years, it was easy to dismiss conservatism as brain-dead. Among policy thinkers, that isn’t true anymore: the advent of Obama seems to have provided just the jolt that right-of-center wonks needed. But innovative proposals are useless without politicians willing to champion them.

About all those great republican innovations and policy proposals Ross exhorts? I’m pretty sure they’re just north, south, east and west of Baghdad, nestled among the myriads of undiscovered WMDs.
