The decline of conservatism

[A]n annoying thing for those who disliked Obama’s politics: He is at the same time a genuinely high-quality personality—intelligent, considerate, dignified, and self-disciplined. Those who hated him were deprived of any rational basis to despise him. Lacking a rational basis, they reverted to irrationality instead.

David Frum, reflecting particularly on Dinesh D’Souza (who does not seem to be taken seriously as a conservative any longer among those I recognize as conservative).
