"Recovering" right-wing author trying to help.
I am not trying to usurp what's being done here, and I plan to post here as time permits. However, in the interm I'm also trying to do what I can via my own blog (www.shamblog.com), which covers political issues through a more psychological/philosophical lens. For many years in the mid-90s I was a "designated pinch-hitter" columnist for the Wall Street Journal, contributing dozens of columns, most of them from a conservative perspective. I've also written extensively for the likes of NRO, American Enterprise, American Spectator, etc. And in my heart, I still basically believe that conservatism--in an ideal world--is "the way." But the stakes are too high this year for partisanship; I simply find that I cannot believe any of what John McCain says...and I find Palin to be a genuine embarrassment.
