    Do you agree with Rep. Phil Gingrey?
    Considering the fact he has a highly rated conservative talk radio show I would have to say Phil Gingrey is right.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Edmund Burke is a Conservative giant. Disraeli is a Conservative giant. Micheal Oakeshott is a Conservative giant. Robert Nisbet is a Conservative giant.

    Limbaugh is political journalist who I personally think has little of importance to say.

    Just because Republicans rate him highly doesn't make him conservative. You of all people know that the GOP is far from Conservative.

    Its too bad that the third option on this poll is simply an option of personal preference towards Limbaugh, rather than a confirmation or repudiation of his status.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
