I couldn't help laughing out loud at a line from this Jonah Goldberg column:
Allegedly defending that: "Reagan, thankfully, was no pragmatist"

"[C]onservative ideology explicitly accepts that compromise is part of life." In other words: one of conservatism's firmly held beliefs is... that it's ok to betray one's firmly held beliefs.

I'm reminded of Groucho Marx's quip: "These are my principles. If you don't like them, I have others."

No wonder the size and scale of the government relentlessly continues to grow, even under Republicans.
