Standing Athwart History Shouting… Something


Glenn Greenwald has a long and interesting post about what, if anything, "conservative" now means in America. For a disturbingly large portion of soi-disant conservatives, he notes, it seems to mean little more than support for George Bush—and "liberal" little more than critical of Bush, whatever the reason. And he hunts down an amusing old Free Republic thread on the dire threat to civil liberties posed by secret FISA courts (under Clinton).
