Newfound Respect for David Frum

I'd never heard of the American Enterprise Institute's David Frum until last spring, when he appeared on Bill Maher's fabulous HBO show. I came away from that episode disliking him pretty strongly.

However, he has written a very thoughtful piece in the New York Times titled "The Vanishing Republican Voter" in which he engages in the same kind of "I'm on your side but I'm still going to point out what you're doing wrong" reasoning, directed at Republicans and conservatism in general, that I try to direct at Democrats and liberalism in general.

Check it out if you get a chance.
