The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy: Camille Paglia: Liberal, Thinker and Patriot

I don’t always agree with Ms. Paglia but no one can question her intellectual honesty.  A liberal/progressive who isn’t afraid to put intellect and common sense before ideology. We could use more Americans like her on both sides of the aisle. I will warn my readers that she has harsh words for the GOP but for the most part they ring true. We would be well served as conservatives to heed her advice. For example, how many conservatives felt that Bob Dole or John McCain was the strongest candidate we had to offer?

She has often suffered the outrage of her own side due to her uncompromising ability to take off the rose colored glasses and speak truth to power.  If you have the time you would be well served to seek out some of her other writings or catch her on a news program.

She is a unique voice on the left.

    “…how many conservatives FELL that Bob Dole…”? I imagine quite a few fell.

      It should have read “felt” but I missed the error as did my spell checker, Bad Computer! Bad! Although now that I think about it we sort of “fell” for the whole Bob Dole thing too!
