New York Times conservative columnist Ross Douthat attended the Restoring Honor Rally and wrote a column on it that must've really unnevered the opinion editor, who was undoubetly forced to choose between that and the letters to the editor detailing "eyewitness" accounts from "readers" like Daureen Moud and Kaul Prugman, who saw Beck turn into a dragon and forced everyone to repent or face the hellfire clamoring for release from his demonically conservative gullet.
You can read the piece here, or you can see the concluding paragraphs, which give a pretty good idea of the direction it went in.
I know Douthat has some pretty impressive credentials, but this is supposed to pass for the conservative voice at the Times? I guess over there conservative = "medicated liberal."
Douthat was ALMOST there wasn't he? But like Biden holding a flash card of when television was really invented...
...he completely misses the point about Glenn Beck's mission. He's not trying to be the conservative Michael Moore (as stated near the beginning of his column). He's fighting for ideals that are more univeral and enduring than the result of any one election.
I don't know, he writes for the most liberal rag in the country, so maybe he's just trying to speak to them slowly...
...and dumb down the column in terms that even a Manhattan liberal can understand...
By the way, I want to apologize for not knowing of a good web-safe font to communicate "idiot" for the above questions.
The bottom line is this, Beck is the 21st century Paul Revere, not for the political world...for the spiritual one. Fighting for God in our hearts isn't the fad that tub Michael Moore turned out to be, it is SO MUCH MORE than that, and I hope Douthat knew this and was just being forced to play to his audience.
