Goodbye, Mr. Buckley

No matter how much I agree with American liberals, in terms of sheer capability of expression, astounding articulateness and intellect, none of them – really, none of them – can hold a candle to Mr. William F. Buckley Jr.

A German friend of mine asked me once – it was a rhetorical question, with more than a little astonishment in his voice: "Is there such a thing in America as intellectual conservative?"

Not anymore.
