Taking on David Frum

The current issue of The American Conservative (Jan. 28, 2008) includes “Dead Wrong,” my look at the curious career of David Frum, a man who has built a career on trashing anyone to his Right.  Frum’s claim to fame is as the neocons’ hit-man.  But is he any kind of a conservative himself?  He’s never made much pretense of being a social conservative (he’s pro-abortion, for example).  His economic conservatism isn’t what it’s cracked up to be, either. But that hasn’t stopped Frum from trying to excommunicate Pat Buchanan, Robert Novak, and the rest of the antiwar Right from the conservative movement.
