Quote of the day

Yuval Levin:
At that point, progressive and conservative American liberals parted ways — the former drawn to post-liberal philosophies of utopian ends (often translated from German) while the latter continued to defend the restraining mechanisms of classical-liberal institutions and the skeptical worldview that underlies them.

FLG actually LOL'd at the parenthetical remark. Similarly, every once and a while, out of nowhere, FLG mutters the names Horkheimer and Adorno under his breath like a curse. Although, FLG's real ire is directed toward Auguste Comte because, as regular readers know, FLG blames the French intellectual tradition for almost everything, including the financial crisis.

I think it is best if we just ignore trolls like Adorno.

QOTD Nominee --

"If Gingrich is the nominee, barring a dead girl or live boy in the Lincoln Bedroom, Obama wins. However hard he tries, he can’t stop being Newt. And that’s not someone middle-of-the-road Obama voters now suffering buyer’s remorse are going to vote for." -- Mark Krikorian
