A Previous Heretic

I'm not the first conservative to be cast out as a "liberal" by the National Review crowd. Clive Davis remembers another from Sam Tanenhaus's bio.

[Whittaker] Chambers was sounding precariously like a liberal. So be it. He had wearied of ideological battles. "I have scarcely an interest in invective tags." His prevailing interest was simply to "grope for reality".

Another gay man, of course. And so doubly suspect.
