What Conservatives stand for apparently

Via Kevin Drum, it appears the National Review has hired another intellectual titan, Mike Potemra:

I have over the past couple of months been watching DVDs of Star Trek: The Next Generation, a show I missed completely in its run of 1987 to 1994; and I confess myself amazed that so many conservatives are fond of it. Its messages are unabashedly liberal ones of the early post-Cold War era — peace, tolerance, due process, progress....


1. As Drum notes apparently some conservatives are now willing to fess up to loving war, intolerance, kangaroo courts, and going backwards. Points for honesty I guess.

2. The guy is essentially saying, I don't like Star Trek, but I've been watching old DVD's of it over the last several months. I'm sure Mr. Potemra would say the same thing about fetish porn.

3. Not liking Star Trek? How long will Doughbob Loadpants allow this guy to keep a job? Stupidity and incompetency are one thing at the National Review, hell, they're essential functions, but dissing Star Trek -- straight out!
