Smoke Screen

This review of Jonah Goldberg’s most recent book is worth a read, so you can avoid the book. (NYT Free registration, yadda, yadda)

But a comment on that review gets “most insightful comment of the day.” Specifically, this part of the comment:

What is known today as the Right is quite outside the Republican tradition. Ideas such as limited government, individual rights, and indifference to other countries’ politics have suddenly been reversed by people such as Goldberg. Demonizing liberals is nothing but a smokescreen to distract from their real agenda, which is corporate fascism, military intervention, and control of individual behavior.

Well put.
