Comments: Politics, Parties, and Partisanship

When I followed the link from Neiwert's site, I realized that I'd scanned the article before: Avedon had it listed, though she underplayed it considerably. But Dave put it into context for me much more effectively, as did the followup.

I think you're right about the Wilson piece, too. It's worth noting, which he didn't, that we came out of those times of struggle only with great difficulty and by finding a solid ground to choose rather than muddle about.

The footnote is going to drive me nuts. I know who Edmund Burke is (actually, I know at least two of them, one still alive; I'm assuming you mean the dead conservative), but I can't find any reference in the post or even an asterisk....

Sorry, Ahistoricality. I edited the reference out of the text, trying to shorten the entry down to something more reasonable, but forgot to remove the footnote! Doing so now.

And you're right about the "finding middle ground" issue to. Although I'd have to think about it for a while to find the potential middle ground for our current situation.

Luther - I'm not certain what relevance that link has?
