On his book No Right Turn: Conservative Politics in a Liberal America

Cover Interview of October 31, 2010

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“After four decades of frustration, conservative anger has again become a political force.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

No Right Turn is a historical critique of conservative politics—not an attack on conservative values.”

On the second:

“The Tea Party is as much inspired by the contemporary politics of betrayal and predation as by the idealized golden-age politics of the Founding Fathers.”
