What Smart Conservatism Looks Like

Philbrick at Mustard Street is on-point yet again today on the Time-Warner issue. He's been right from the start, asking smart, skeptical questions and having a conservative (not reactionary) take on Massa's proposed legislation.

Time-Warner's behavior was anti-competitive and monopolistic, and when their rhetoric wasn't flat-out bullshit, it was full of Orwellian doubletalk. There's nothing right or left about fighting a utility company's attempt to gouge consumers, and I hope that some elected conservatives will realize that the next time this issue comes around.

He had a pretty tepid reaction - hog-tied by his ideology, no doubt.
