In the Facepalm Dept....

(Surprisingly enough, not from the Leiter Hate Factory this time.)

National Review is still in the intellectual shitter 50 years later with respect to all the hate/fear/ignorance directed towards Ayn Rand. This hit-piece isn't as world-historically bad as the Chambers review, of course, but has "conservatism" really been this stagnant, for 50 whole years? Well, of course it has been! "Conservatism" is essentially defined by stagnation. It's a fitting counterpart to the "liberals'" do-everything-half-assed pragmatism, innit?
