New York-Conservative journalist and commentator David Frum[p] is joining the Daily Beast and Newsweek, where he’ll write a blog for the site and features for the weekly magazine.
In making the move, Frum[p] shut down operations of his own site, Frum[p]Forum.
“Over the past 3 years, the hard work of over 70 regular contributors and hundreds of other supporters has made a tremendous editorial success out of first NewMajority.com, then Frum[p]Forum.com,” Frum[p] wrote in a Friday morning email to contributors.
“Together we have forcefully joined the debate over the future of the Republican party—and I think we together have shifted that debate. When we started, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck were real forces in American politics. I don’t think we can take all the credit for seeing them off, but we do deserve at least some of it.”
Frum[p], a former President George W. Bush speechwriter, has never been shy when it comes to taking on some of the loudest talkers on the right. In 2009, prior to the merger with the Daily Beast, Frum[p] wrote a Newsweek cover story on “Why Rush Is Wrong.” A life-long Republican, Frum[p] wrote a first-person New York magazine piece in February about how the current primary races shows [sic] a party “losing touch with reality.” (January 6, 2012)
Elementary commentary by some wacko called Alex Pareene at large on Salon’s site, who still is holding out for old Adolf:
There comes a time at most large family gatherings when a heated political argument breaks out. And by “heated political argument” what I mean is “someone just repeats something they heard on Hannity’s radio show that you know to be completely untrue.”…What to do?…
If you insist on answering back, here are some suggestions.
Barack Obama disrespected the U.K. by sending it the White House bust of Winston Churchill.
Sure the “correct” answer is that presidents change the décor when they move into the White House, but I’d just say, “Winston Churchill was a raging racist drunk asshole,” because he was. (December 25, 2011)
Nathan Schneider offers painful proof that anarchists have moved on from murdering presidents and bombing public buildings to become hopelessly boring. Give this guy a chair at the Harvard State Univer-sity Department of Ontology:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
