Dumb and Dumber: Revisiting Conservatives as the Stupid Party (Orrin C. Judd, 02/23/2005, Tech Central Station)

They are neither stupid nor insane. They are senile.

They remind me of one of my grandmothers, who, in the final stages, only remembered her childhood in the Dakotas, some 80 odd years earlier, who asked the same question every five minutes because she could not remember the answer. The Left should be grateful that the rest of us aren't as enthusiastic about euthanasia as they are, and like my grandmother, we will just have to humor them and put up with their behavior until they die a natural death.

It's hard to take to take the left seriously as an intellectual force when just about any discussion with a liberal has them proclaiming, "Yeah, but at least we're not in favour of bigotry and fascism!" as a response to argument and logic.

OJ. Great column. I note that Ike made your list of successful conservative presidents, though you're generally hard on him here, too hard in my view sometimes, but for the principled reason that he maintained the status quo and delayed our chance to defeat communism sooner.

Shouldn't McKinley have been on that list?

And Taft, but that's a bit too far back.

oj, I think you should post your articles here before submitting them to TCS so we can rip them to shreds, er, I mean, offer constructive criticism to make the article even better. :-)
