I was going to write a bunch of generalizations about liberals and conservatives here that probably would completely fall apart under close scrutiny, so I’m just going to say this instead. Conservatives would be way, way better off if Eve Tushnet were famous instead of Ann Coulter. She’s the kind of conservative that I can read and appreciate, even though I don’t agree with her on all that many things. For example, her thoughts on same sex marriage are downright interesting and thought provoking. Your run of the mill conservative pundit seems to me to be more interested in provoking anything but thought. (Whoops, I had to let that generalization slip in.)
