Muddy Thinking, but Clearly Conservative

If you’re looking for a peek into the Right-Wing mind, and don’t have the stomach for a trip to the Free Republic, you might be interested in checking out John McIntyre and Tom Bevan who run RealClearPolitics.com. John is so hooked on the Koolaid he makes Tom look like a flaming liberal-- okay, "liberal" isn't really the right word (and I'm sure John hates that I used the word flaming). Reading McIntyre, one get’s the impression that if Bush told him he had a 180 IQ he'd say, "Gee, Sir, I thought it was 200." Tom, on the other hand, would at least claim to understand why others might think it was only 175.

Here’s a recent sample of John:

I thought the President did a very good job in his press conference yesterday. His answer to a question on homosexuality was perfect:

“Yes, I am mindful that we're all sinners, and I caution those who may try to take the speck out of their neighbor's eye when they got a log in their own. I think it's very important for our society to respect each individual, to welcome those with good hearts, to be a welcoming country. On the other hand, that does not mean that somebody like me needs to compromise on an issue such as marriage….. “

This may not satisfy the New York Times or Andrew Sullivan, but it perfectly describes the attitudes of a vast majority of Americans towards homosexuality. Bush makes it very clear that we as a nation need to respect each individual and the importance that we be a welcoming country.


Apparently John agrees with Bush, that telling someone that he or she is a depraved sinner with limited rights, “but what the hell, I sinned once myself,” constitutes “respect for the individual.” Maybe if Orwell were writing the script.

John on 2004:

We are still threatened and the county is aware that we are still threatened. We're on the hunt, and the country wants to be on the hunt. And in the first presidential election post 9/11 the Democrats won't stand a chance unless their nominee is willing to go on that hunt with the same zeal as President Bush.

John loves a zealous hunter.

Their own commentary aside, they do have a daily collection of links to commentary/editiorials, mostly conservative, that is sometimes interesting to peruse. And during the last election, although slanted, they did a good job posting polling data in a variety of races. Just don’t drink the koolaid.
