the irrelevance of modern conservatism

the irrelevance of modern conservatism

I don’t root for it, by the way. I’d rather the right be relevant, but that won’t happen as long as its major influences are a callous, hypocritical blowhard, a messianic Mormon, an unrepentant nihilist and Sarah Palin. By a wide margin, Americans consider Rush […]

If I have my way this song will figure prominently within the script I’m currently co-writing. INT. Dark, dank living room. John Milch Sr. and his son-in-law, Elton Bonner, watch television in silence. Probably because the volume on the TV is so loud — though […]
