Desperately Seeking Conservatives

DESPERATELY SEEKING CONSERVATIVES....I see that today's Bill Kristol column in the New York Times will be his last. Good. He was boring.

But who should the Times replace him with? It shouldn't be a "liberal's conservative," it should be a genuine, dedicated, smart, reality-grounded, conservative's conservative — someone who will drive liberals crazy. Who best fits that bill?

UPDATE: I was going to add something to this post and then decided not to bother. But I guess I should have. So, in response to Matt's criticism, what I meant is: a conservative who drives liberals crazy because he makes such compelling and hard-to-refute arguments for conservative ideas.
