David Frum forced out of conservaturd septic tank after 11 years.
After criticizing republican party leaders for their total opposition to President Obama's health-care plans, former Bush speechwriter David Frum was given the heave-ho from the conservative American Enterprise Institute echo chamber.
Former Republican policy advisor Bruce Bartlett, fired by the rightwing National Center for Policy Analysis for writing a book critical of Bunnypants, responded:
“[Frum] asked if I had noticed any comments by American Enterprise ‘scholars’ on the subject of health care reform. I said no and he said that was because they had been ordered not to speak to the media because they agreed with too much of what Obama was trying to do.It has. And from the conservive Front Page Mag:
“It saddened me to hear this. I have always hoped that my experience was unique. But now I see that I was just the first to suffer from a closing of the conservative mind. Rigid conformity is being enforced, no dissent is allowed, and the conservative brain will slowly shrivel into dementia if it hasn't already.”
"The Right's response to David Frum's perceived heresies has inflicted serious intellectual and political damage on the conservative movement.””Intellectual” damage? I don’t think that was ever a problem.
