From another reader:
Good to see that Staussians are “mainstream conservatives” but Mel Bradford wasn’t. I’m glad that it’s okay to be part of a gnostic cult glorifying deception, hedonism, and atheism, but unforgivable to have supported George Wallace in 1968. I only wish someone would have explained that to Ronald Reagan, who courted the Wallace voters assiduously and won the White House in 1980 in part because many of them (included Bradford) voted for Reagan. It’s amazing the things I learn at NRO.
