Kristol's main flaw, although not exactly unique is his own inflated view of himself. He frequently eschews pragmatism with his fellow conservatives..(broadly speaking). No wonder he loved McCain..lol...
I know Marty sold TNR...right?....but I'm not sure it's now become "conservative" yet. Are the new owners both neo-cons as well? They appear to fit the Jewish neocon label....name-wise, which btw, sort of bugs me. I would not lump all Jewish conservatives into the neocon soup because of support for Israel. Many hard right culture warriors like myself feel the same way....and frankly G-d has nothing to do with it from my perspective.
There was a day 20 odd years ago when TNR boasted Fred Barnes, Krauthammer (I know...another Neo), and PJ O'Rourke.
Interesting article nonetheless...

A supporter of McCain cannot call himself conservative I believe McCain to be a closet communist who was brainwashed by the Vietnamese.

I associate "hard right"( I definitely consider myself hard right but not a culture warrior) culture warriors with people like Currybot and hold them beneath contempt. You seem like a nice affable guy not some mindless robot spouting off slogans which bash libertarians more than rats.
