William F. Buckley Jr., Nov. 24, 1925, to Feb. 27, 2008, conservative guru.

A perfect example of an aristocrat. He spoke and wrote and no one knew
exactly what he was talking about.

Because no one could understand Buckley, the nation of conservatism
has been infiltrated by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage,
Neal Boortz, Pat Buchanan and Sean Hannity -- a rogue gallery of
conservative advocates who didn't understand Buckley anymore than he
understood himself.

The reason I state the above: The fellows mentioned practice nothing
but sensational journalism in the name of conservatism, because talk
radio -- 3,000 stations -- control the airwaves.

The one thing I remember of Buckley: He was an advocate for 
legalizing marijuana.

To all the conservatives above, do you renounce and reject Buckley as
a good conservative because of his advocacy to legalize drugs, or are
you fellows for legalizing drugs?

There is nothing wrong with being a good Democrat investigating the
powerful conservatives.
