We’ll have more on this later today, I feel certain, but for now please let me put in my two cents mourning the death of, but celebrating the life of, loyal Reaganite and world-class character Lyn Nofziger. What a true conservative, what a wonderfully un-egotistical, what an approachable and authentic and principled man he was! As a college student in the early/mid 1980s I attended the Conservative Political Action Conference three straight years and always thought one of the highlights each year was whatever panel Nofziger sat on. He never pulled punches, never trimmed his sails, always gave his opinions unvarnished. He was entertaining, funny, irreverent, delightful. And later on he wrote a few western novels; I read the first one of them just two years ago. “Tackett,” it was called, and it was simple and fun, a great bit of old-fashioned storytelling. Tackett was a good man, and so was the author who created his exploits. May he rest in peace, as he rests always in our highest esteem.
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?
