The Best Blog You May Not Be Reading

Is right here.

Start with this piece. It's passionate, witty, on-point and principled, which describes the whole blog. (Except for the sports posts. My position on sports is clear: I don't care who did what with the ball.)

If, and I hope when, the GOP sheds the looney religious right and refocuses on what I think are the party's core raisons d'etre: free people, free markets, strong defense, caution in foreign policy, a decent respect for tradition, and reverence for the constitution, they'll get my vote.

There remain two reasons I cannot abide the GOP: the dog-whistle racism, and the alliance between the party and religious bigots determined to enforce a two-tier citizenship in which we are all equal so long as we are conservative Christians. There is no tent big enough for me to fit in with them.

But real, actual conservatives? That would be a very different story.
