Modern Conservatives=bad Metal Band
a: Modern conservative ~
b: a bad metal band
What: "How did conservative discussion on TV go from this to Glenn Beck? While still given to hyperbole, they both are quite erudite and there's no yelling or fearmongering. Compared to this, modern conservatives sound like a bad metal band: a lot of noise with no substance." The linked video is a Firing Line discussion between Bill Buckley and Malcolm Muggeridge. And the point is raised in this analogy is appropriate. How did political conservatism go from this to the noisy nonsense that is Fox News?
