I ran into a slang term a decade or so ago. The term was "a beard" and its definition was that of a women married to a gay man to cover up the fact that they were gay. Which has since struck me as the entire purpose of what passes for conservative intelligentsia, to act as a cover for what conservatism has become. I am not sure who the "one" who might think is in your concluding line but it isn't me and I am sure it isn't you. And it certainly isn't about ninety-nine percent of the people who call themselves conservative.

In summation: The fat orange bitch works for us not the other way around.

I love it when you cut right to the chase. Tickles me to death.

The thing is that Anne is the smartest, and quite funny, and genuine. Which is why we love her. That, and her total honesty, and burrowing down and calling out BS, as only she can do. We haven't always loved each other but I've always known that she's the smartest commenter here. She cuts through.

I quite agree. The ability to cut through to the heart of the matter can be learned somehow. I suppose. But it cannot be taught.

This. Anne is a treasure.

Peter, you're not a retard yourself. You're very clever indeed and you don't need me to tell you that. Yourself and Anne are two sides of the same coin. You both contribute hugely to this blog. You because you're so knowledgeable and brilliant, Anne because she's such an intelligent person who doesn't mess around with platitudes and has a way of condensing the arguments into something insightful and funny. You're both fabulous.

Max, yes.
