  •  Hunter is on to something here (14+ / 0-)

    It isn't the content of the piece he's critiquing. It isn't even his riposte which is complete.

    It's the idea that "conservative = good" isn't as accurate as "good = conservative"---that is to say, whenever anything is a net positive it is automatically associated with reactionary politics. A sunny day, fun with your kids, a good meal, even sex--if they're in the slightest way life enhancing, it's because of rightist politics.

    Once one starts thinking that way, you get essays like the one H deconstructs. That "good" and "great" and "excellent" ARE conservatism itself. Which means that any news story--however tangentially related to politics--is seen through the lens of "good is conservatism, evil is liberalism". That this is cult-think is irrelevant--we know the GOP is a cult. It's the complete perversion of language to where any and all that is shaded in the light is conservatism and the darkness is "liberal".

    That's how they roll. They're nucking futs.
