Goldberg on Crunchy Cons

I have been planning a long, powerful, insightful, fair, and yet ultimately critical review of Rod Dreher’s new book Crunchy Cons. I am working my way through the book and even reading the Crunchy Blog over at NRO. But before I could post my thoughts Jonah Goldberg comes along and steals all of my thunder with his long essay on the subject. This is what happens when you are not a professional journalist. While Jonah was busy finishing the book and writing his piece, I was doing mundane things like my day job and trying to get my fussy daughter to go to sleep so her mother and I can regain our sanity.

Oh well, if there was any one I wanted to steal my thunder it would be Jonah. If you want to take a look at my thoughts on this subject when it was only a magazine article here are some links:

Crunchy Cons – Again
Granola Conservatives

I had a lot to say back them didn’t I? Look for my by now redundant book review in the coming days.

The following two tabs change content below.
I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season).

One thought on “Goldberg on Crunchy Cons

  1. I tend to agree with Dreher until I read Goldberg’s replies. I go along with Dreher in several (not all) of his arguments, but I fail to see where this divides me from mainstream conservatism. It seems as if Dreher is an insider gazing longingly at the outside.
