Douthat loved Beckfest:
In a sense, Beck’s “Restoring Honor” was like an Obama rally through the looking glass. It was a long festival of affirmation for middle-class white Christians — square, earnest, patriotic and religious. If a speaker had suddenly burst out with an Obama-esque “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for,” the message would have fit right in.
I’m reasonably sure there wasn’t that much fornication going on, which makes it all the better for the youngest prude in the world. Although TBOGG does Douthat so much better:
When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag, carrying a cross, sitting in a lawn chair and eating a KFC Double Down
He forgot the scooters.
