Ross Douthat's writing that is. I've been meaning to post up some of his stuff for a while, but since it's a Saturday and I'm lazy I'll just make links here, here and here. It's worth a read, and it's a nice reminder that conservatives can be reasonable, intellegent and sane.
By the way, take a real good look at Ross' Iraq post (the first link). I've often said that if McCain's got a shot of winning he's got to sell the surge big time, but Douthat shows how hard that's going to be. Hint: If a tree surges in the forest and Brian Williams doesn't report it, does it really surge?
