    That sounds like an awesome read - any good stuff in there?

    Much.For one thing, it had an elaborate introduction that tried to explain American conservatism and its seeming contradictions. This one was a bit more technical in its writing than other explanations I had read, but it had much to offer in way of explaining how conservatism (probably much like liberalism) is not a strict adherence of beliefs, meant to be executed in very specific ways. There's a lot of wiggle room involved. A lot of them are synopses of newspapers, their writers, and the positions they took and how it may have changed over time. It's also a great way of keeping track with what the intellectual climate had for specific publications. It's easy to forget what publications existed when, or easy to forget their existence at all.

    Even if you're not a Christian, you just have to smile at this.

    You're right, that looks even tastier than Josie's cheesecake.

    And all the little pigs have God
