In this day and age, if you are not called some names and you have been in journalism as long as I have, then you probably have not said anything very much worthwhile in my judgment…. What I am is a heretic to the conventional wisdom as it moves further and further left and you are more and more outside. I mean my views in that book many of them would not even have been controversial had they been written a while ago.Pat's in his 70s so I imagine that "a while ago" is somewhat more elastic than The Lovely Daughter's definition.
Look out Pat! The National Review just fired a couple of racists in a completely sincere attempt to gather amulets. Will The Corner's commentariat weigh in?
