Lessons in Standing Ovations

by Jay Nordlinger

Years ago, I attended a left-of-center conference. There were two or three of us token conservatives there. One person used his time to tell the audience that their civil liberties were under assault, because of cameras at stoplights, or something.

I remembered this when reading about Rand Paul yesterday — how he got a standing ovation from the kids at Berkeley by telling them that the guvmint was spyin’ on ’em.

Great, great. I would have been more impressed if he had gone in there and said something about abortion.
