Daniel Larison makes me very happy, in that he (as far as I know) is the only conservative I can find who has repudiated Ericka Andersen's comments which excommunicated me, my family, most of my friends, most of the people I have loved, and many thousands of people I care for or admire, from real America and real American culture.
It bothers me, that more people aren't bothered. Telling people they cling to guns and religion, I guess, is a far worse crime than telling them straightforwardly that they aren't American, that they aren't America, and they never will be.
Watch out, by the way, for Daniel Larison-- Daniel Larison-- to be relegated to the same status of "leftist blogger" that Andrew Sullivan and John Cole have been. This is the party that you've built, conservatives, this is your baby, a vehicle fueled by exclusionism and eliminationism. And if any of you think that you can't be one of the ones pushed out of the tent... think again.
