The WaPo's E.J. Dionne on Angry, Misguided Conservatism

The Washington Post's E.J. Dionne on the nuttiness and irrationality of the current conservative wailers, a group that includes many of Oklahoma's so-called conservatives:
In its current incarnation, conservatism has taken on an angry crankiness. It is caught up in a pseudo-populism that true conservatism should mistrust -- what on Earth would Bill Buckley have made of "death panels"? The creed is caught up in a suspicion of all reform that conservatives of the Edmund Burke stripe have always warned against.
Authentic conservatism is better than this.
