Just a Marvelous Quote - The Media and the Word "Conservative"

From The Corner at NRO:

Quote of the Day, Yesterday [Jonah Goldberg]

I think I'm going to start posting quotes I like — perhaps often of dubious relevance to today's events — in the Corner. Why? Why not?

So, today: From Wikipedia, a great quote from, Norman Tebbit, a former Thatcher cabinet member:

"The word 'conservative' is used by the BBC as a portmanteau word of abuse for anyone whose views differ from the insufferable, smug, sanctimonious, naive, guilt-ridden, wet, pink orthodoxy of that sunset home of the third-rate minds of that third-rate decade, the nineteen-sixties. "
