WFB, RIP. I know, lot of us "got over" him at some point in our lives, for one reason or another, but come on, admit it, those of us who can remember the Johnson administration (never mind the Innocent III administration) were impressed that someone could be a conservative intellectual with equal emphasis on both elements of that expression, and a lot of us wouldn't be conservatives today, in any sense, without that example.
