The Conservative Song Remains the Same

I’m a big fan of Gordon Skeene’s Newstalgia blog at Crooks & Liars, where I found this feature on H.L. Hunt last night. Hunt sounds exactly like an Atlas Shrugged-thumping tea party conservative, and his political activism is reminiscent of the right wing billionaires screwing things up in our own time. That’s because the belief system of fringe conservatism has never actually changed. People like Hunt have made sure of that.

Socialize this!
