Here is an interesting twist. Conservatives are dismayed over recent years and what became of their friend, the Republican Party. Well, parrot that concept, and sneak in the opposite reason as an explanation and you know how liberals think. In this way, they try to redefine conservative values from their bent prism. In this case it is the Pitts, really.

............................................

Except, according to my correspondents, those conservatives in charge weren't really conservative at all.

As Roy from Sanger, Calif., put it in an e-mail: "If you believe what we have had in D.C. so far this century is a conservative Washington, your perceptions are colored by a memory loss of what real conservatism looks like. Bring back to life 'real' conservatives who died before 1996, and they would think only one party ruled in D.C. now, the tax and spend, spend and spend some more party."

The funny thing is, I agree.

But I have a question for them: Where have you been the last 15 years? Where were you when conservatism was untethered from principle, unhooked from reality? Where were you when it became smug and self-righteous, when it traded its integrity for situational outrage, its credibility for angry certitude, its honor for ballot box success? Where were you when it sold out to evangelicals and anti-intellectuals? Where were you when it got hijacked?.............

Wake-up time for conservatives with a conscience
