Right Thinking and Right Speech--from the Right, no Less

Odd, isn't it? It's rare that you find a Republican that says anything worth paying attention to these days, much less anything that might be a partial illustration of the Noble Eightfold Path. But this guy is on to something. If more actual conservatives would speak up, that would be good. Conservatives who, you know, should be alarmed about, oh, say, the fucking NSA spying on American citizens--done without a warrant, not even from the secret, rubber-stamp FISA court.

Well, take a look at the Confessions of a Repentant Republican, if you've got the time. It's worth a look, if for nothing else than this line:

We must not surrender flag and faith to those who would use both to support a war which honors neither.

That's a pretty good tagline.
