Shoot the Message

From David Sessions at Patrol, hereís a new idea for the party of new ideas:

So Teetsel canít pretend that the gay rights movement won simply by circumventing an intellectual debate. They had the intellectual debate when the religious right so took its own position for granted that it thought it didnít need to argue; when the right finally started playing catch-up, even the most sophisticated versions of its ideas were too far outside the mainstream for a secular capitalist democracy. The right didnít lose because of the ďpackagingĒ of its ideas, it lost because those ideas themselves were defeated in battle. (Similarly, Romney lost the election not because he didnít get the conservative message across, but precisely because he did.)

Exactly! Conservatives are the antidote to conservatism.
