    “I’ve become less conservative since the Republican Party started becoming goofy.”

    I didn’t realize Posner had been around that long, but it does make sense for him to say he’s become less conservative since 1964.Report

    I do have to take issue with one point in the article. Friedman was never a conservative, his thinking was always classical liberal / libertarian. He gets counted as conservative only because the conservatives were occasionally willing to listen to him.

    I think it’s relevant that of the two conservatives Posner admires, only one of them was a conservative in the first place.Report

    Posner was completely uninteresting to the left until now.

    The NPR link was fantastically uninformative, BTW, the red meat of the conservative bash and who cares about the rest.Report
