Subject: RE: BS: The Tea Party- New & Improved Thread...
I was no fan of William F. Buckley, Jr. (founder and editor of The National Review and host of the television show, "Firing Line"), but he could be considered an "intellectual." Perhaps even the intellectual among Conservatives.

I am given to wonder what his view of the current Republican intransigence on the budget might be. I think he would be very distressed by the behavior of his own party. And the Tea Party? Probably that they are lowering the intelligence level and raising the volume of the Republican Party, neither of which he would approved of.

And of George W. Bush? Buckley would have been absolutely appalled!!
