Just checking to see who will be running conservative journalism in the future. Understanding the conservative movement is like analyzing the Hapsburgs.
As for the content of the piece, it was fine if utterly unremarkable and banal. You'll notice, however, that Kristol and West (another neocon scion perhaps?) duck the core issue: the ban on gays in the military. One way to bring Harvard back into the military mainstream, which is indeed an important goal, would be to end rank discrimination. Kristol's own generation overwhelmingly supports lifting the ban, as does the general public. But the op-ed returns to a hackneyed attempt to make this another 1968 moment. Was Karl Rove Kristol Jr's mentor?
