Paleocons & the Left: Strange Bedfellows (Part II)

Ezra Klein and other liberal bloggers were applauded in a really good article in The American Conservative. Now, this is the second time in a couple of weeks I have pointed out how edifying a read The American Conservative can be, and in reading back issues, this is not a new phenomenon.

In 2004, rather than endorsing one candidate, they ran six editorials with a different writer making a different endorsement: for Bush, Nader, Kerry, the Libertarian Party, the Constitution Party and -- get this -- not voting. Here, one can also read an interview between Nader and Pat Buchanan.

Say what you will about the more repugnant views of many Paleocons, but I think they understand why opinion journalism is important in expanding debate.
