Quote of the day–William F. Buckley, Jr.

But I wonder when else, in the history of controversy, there has been such consistent intemperance, insularity, and irascibility as the custodians of the liberal orthodoxy have shown toward conservatives who question some of the orthodoxy’s premise?  The liberals’ implicit premise is that intercredal dialogues are what one has with Communists, not conservatives, in relationship with whom normal laws of civilized discourse are suspended.
