Niall Ferguson: Republicans for Kerry

Niall Ferguson's excellent WSJ editorial has at last made its way unto a platform where anyone can read it. There's plenty of material there to give a lot of conservatives heartburn, but I think the questions Ferguson asks deserve to be taken seriously. Are theocracy, the big brother state and incestuous links between government and favored corporations to become the defining traits of the conservative movement? What profiteth a party if it holds on to power but loses all its ideals? [Via Crooked Timber]
