Here he chimes in on William F. Buckley. Take it away, Ray:
You certainly can argue that Buckley was an ideologue - he almost single-handedly created the modern American conservative movement - but not in the pejorative sense we've infected that word with.
"Not in the pejorative sense we've infected that word with." Hun? What does that mean? I didn't know conservative had a pejorative sense. And who's the "we" who has infected the word conservative with a perjorative sense? Since it's coming from a member of the media, I think we can guess who the "we" is.
And how asinine is the phrase "you can certainly argue that Buckley was an ideologue"? Hell yes, he was an ideologue. That was his entire point.
