You know who hated chickenhawks? Edmund Burke

I cannot conceive any existence under heaven...that is more truly odious and disgusting than an impotent, helpless creature, without civil wisdom or military skill, without a consciousness of any other qualification for power but his servility to it, bloated with pride and arrogance, calling for battles which he is not to fight, contending for a violent dominion which he can never exercise, and satisfied to be himself mean and miserable, in order to render others contemptible and wretched.
Go read Scott Horton's full article. It seems Burke wouldn't have been a big supporter of Gitmo, either.

But we must send someone posthaste to poor Jonah Goldberg's house to begin the suicide watch. The man he calls the "father of conservatism" called him a pussy.

So, the "Father of Conservatism" called Jonah Goldberg a pussy.

I'll bet Burke also claimed that the sun rises in the East and sets in the West.

The meaning of the terms "liberal" and "conservative" have been subjected to major revisionism in the last century.

Policies that were once considered foundations of one side or the other have shifted places, which makes for tough sledding when reading history.

Jonah was never any good in the 400 meter hurdles at the dead quote Olympics.
