If Frum Knows What Is Good For Him, He Would Throw In The Towell

If there is a last word on the Rush Limbaugh vs. David Frum stand off, I think Victor Davis Hansen has it.

I don’t see how Frum can win this argument, since he does not seem to understand the Limbaugh brief, which I think is something like the following:

Conservatism, to the degree it is failing, either has gotten off message (e.g., the mega-deficits of the irresponsible Republican Congress between 2001 and 2006, or the shamelessness of a Ted Stevens or Duke Cunningham or Larry Craig, or the inability of the Bush administration to convey to the public our aims and objectives in Iraq) or simply cannot communicate in an effective way why lower taxes, smaller government, individual freedom, muscular national defense, and traditional emphasis on the family and community are of interest to everyone, regardless of age, race, or class

  1. I thought you might be referring to this: the Hyacinth Girl has challenged Frum, and I'm pretty sure she could take him.
