Contemporary conservative thought: pathetic

Russel Jacoby chronicles the sad state of conservative thought in the U.S. today in The Chronicle of Higher Education.  I agree with much of what Jacoby has to say here.  Classical conservative thought (and by this I mean people like Burke), have much to offer, and can even be used to shore up some of the dicier arguments in liberalism oddly enough.  But today there’s little that passes for rigor among conservative thinkers in America.
