Am I a Moderate?

By Nicholas Stix

Identifying oneself as a “moderate” is all the rage these days among folks who until fairly recently identified themselves as “conservatives,” like Davids Brooks and Frum. (Frum isn’t very “frum” these days; his name is Yiddish for “orthodox.”)

Let’s see. I:

• Frequently criticize the Republican Party;
• Do not presently refer to myself as a “conservative”; and
• Did not vote for John McCain for president.

How long will it be before the New York Times and Newsweek, PBS and ABC are kicking my door down, shoving greenbacks in my face?

“In our studio squaring off tonight, are racial socialist analyst Michael Eric Dyson, and moderate analyst, Nicholas Stix.”
