Right Wing. Wrong Way.

Irving Kristol died. If he had spent the last sixty years mentoring the succeeding generations of intellectual youth, rising from the same bleak ghetto life that he did, instead of his pampered, dim witted, prep school educated son and his friends, the neocon cause could have really been something.

He didn't.

It isn't.

A life wasted.

A movement stillborn.

Equally, those of us on the right deem Liberalism as a strange one.

I view most Liberals as having maturity issues because of the way they tend to make decisions based entirely on their emotions.

Sir Winston Churchill coined it precisely:

If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain.

What do you mean? "Equally" what? Are you keeping score?
Ramblinboy expresses a point about how Irving Kristol might have advanced the neocon agenda but by and large failed and you reduce the discussion to Lib vs. Con.
