David Frum is a conservative pundit, a former Bush speechwriter. In simpler times with less dire consequences, I would simply find myself juxtaposed against Frum's conservative bent.

(Malcolm Nance's book, The Plot To Hack America, is essential reading, and Nance is working on the sequel now.) Namasté, one and all.
