The conservative zoo

William Rusher gives a brief overview of the inhabitants, ranging from the libertarians to the paleoconservatives. Which leads me to wonder: Is this more of the good old "big tent" in action or are we headed for major fractures?

On the big tent side of the arguments there's the discussion on NRO about Heather MacDonald's article on religious v. skeptical conservatives. Let me say straight off that whatever your beliefs, if you're entrusted with public safety I expect you to come up with a plan that addresses public safety beyond leaving it up to God. As the saying goes: God helps those who help themselves.

On the other hand, I don't want to share a tent with this guy.
