Quote o' the Day

I no longer have any clear idea what, exactly, the modern conservative movement stands for.

Eight years of 'conservative' government has brought us a doubled national debt, ruinous expansion of entitlement programs, bridges to nowhere, poster boy Jack Abramoff and an ill-premised, ill-waged war conducted by politicians of breathtaking arrogance. As a sideshow, it brought us a truly obscene attempt at federal intervention in the Terry Schiavo case.

-- Christopher Buckley, the son of conservative icon William F. Buckley, after resigning from the conservative "National Review" magazine, which his father founded.
