What He Said

by Jonah Goldberg

One more from a reader:

Dear Mr. Goldberg:

If you can tolerate yet another response to the “bolder” correspondent: I find his wish that Dean beats Bush so a “real conservative” can take over in 2008 to be shortsighted and shrill. He’s got far too much in common with the Democratic Underground types who want the U.S. to be defeated in Iraq — even at the cost of U.S. soldiers’ lives — because they oppose the war. Bush won’t be all things to everyone, but he’s done pretty well by the conservatives. I can assure your bolder reader that conservatives won’t get as much consideration in a Dean administration. As my grandfather used to tell me, accompanied by a smack on the back of the head: “Don’t be stupid!”
