Rod Dreher and my 10 cents

Commenting on the Rush Limbaugh brouhaha, Dreher writes of Victor Davis Hanson:
Likewise, how utterly bizarre is it to read someone in the web version of a publication started by William F(reaking) Buckley using "highbrow" as a pejorative description?
William F. Buckley had great contempt for "sophisticated" opinion. One of his most famous sayings was that he would rather be governed by the first 50 people in the Boston phonebook than the entire faculty of Harvard. Thus I think this critique misses the mark.

I haven't enjoyed Dreher's work for a while now, but he's still worth reading.
