K-Lo vs Frum

David Frum gets disciplined by Kathryn Jean-Lopez and Mark Steyn for expressing his actual opinion on Sarah Palin on TV. Frum responds:

Perhaps it is our job at NRO is tell our readers only what they want to hear, without much regard to whether it is true. Perhaps it is our duty just to keep smiling and to insist that everything is dandy - that John McCain's economic policies make sense, that his selection of Sarah Palin was an act of statesmanship, that she herself is the second coming of Anna Schwartz, and that nobody but an over-educated snob would ever suggest otherwise.

Well, yes, David. Didn't you get the memo? A simple question for the NRO right: When David "Axis Of Evil" Frum is cast out as a liberal MSM toady, who exactly is still a conservative?
