ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

The Telegraph's List

FYI to the editorial board of The Telegraph in the UK:

  1. Chris Hitchens is not a conservative. I doubt there's are many issues on which Chris would agree with Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Buckley, etc - all of whom are listed as being less influential than Hitchens.
  2. Andrew Sullivan is not a conservative. I would guess that supporting John Kerry and Barack Obama in the presidential elections would disqualify you from being a conservative.
  3. Joe Lieberman is not a conservative. Even if he were in the GOP, he wouldn't be #47 of the Top 100 most influential conservatives.

Unless of course the Telegraph's definition of being conservative is someone who recognizes the Islamist threat and being pro-war at some point in the last 5 years. If that's the barometer, I hate to say that you have no f-ing clue what you're talking about.

Other items to note - Conservatives who are profiled who are not influential, such as Larry Craig. Beyond his bathroom antics, who outside of Washington have ever heard of this guy?
