Great Minds, Great Minds

What was it we were saying yesterday about Calista Flockhart's new show, William F. Buckley and Dwight Eisenhower? Well it looks like it was the same thing Laura Ingraham is saying today in National Review:
The show's writer Jon Robin Baitz says that she's a "thoughtful conservative" and that "[s]he's ideologically, in some respects, very much in mind with the older parts of the party, the sort of Eisenhower Republican, the William Buckley conservative. She's also a humanist." Uh, last time I checked Bill Buckley didn't think much of Eisenhower, Jon-Jon. And no respectable conservative who came of age during the Reagan Revolution would ever describe himself as a "humanist."
We are thrilled to be able to bring you Laura Ingraham's commentary a day early. Yesterday we suggested that Brothers and Sister's hire Cathy Seipp to consult for the show, and explain to their producers what a conservative is. Laura Ingraham would be another great choice.
Come to think of it, so would NBS!
