Real Conservatives speak

This is the last one today, I promise, but when one of President I'm-Cheney's-hand-puppet's core constituencies turns on him, the first Wednesday in November might be a very good day. Via High Desert Skeptic. The American Conservative has this treatise from Paul W. Schroeder:

Paul W. Schroeder is professor emeritus of history at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is the author of The Transformation of European Politics, 1765-1848.

This is the last paragraph of Schroeder's article. You have to read the whole thing though.

The 19th century Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard wrote in an essay that a sign of malfunctioning of the digestive system was the inability to become nauseated or to vomit upon eating spoiled food, and that the remedy was to take an emetic. The disorder that offended him then was spiritual, the failure of Danish Lutherans to share his revulsion at a complacent established church that he believed was betraying real Christianity. His analysis and advice apply in a different way to Americans today. Anyone who does not feel revulsion against this administration for what it is doing and has done in Iraq and elsewhere has something seriously wrong with his political digestive system.

This is what I mean about the difference between real Conservatives vs. Republican Christo-Fascist morons.
