  •  Yeah... He kind of lost the thread (8+ / 0-)

    partway through. It rapidly became a publishing history of his failed books, a failure he attributes to his readership's inability to see his prescient brilliance.

    In any event, he's quite right on one thing: by the time he wrote his anti-Bush book, no one in the country was going to need to read it to arrive at its obvious conclusions.

    All that being said, the bits that were specifically about the conservative bubble were interesting indeed. I don't know if he or David Frum or other dissidents will ever be invited bac in from the cold, so far as the conservative movement is concerned.
