He announces his post-National Review plans:
Starting over Inauguration Weekend, I’ll be launching a new website, NewMajority.com. It will be a group blog, featuring many different voices. Not all of them identify as conservatives or Republicans. But they – and people like them – are the people conservatives and Republicans need.
I hope we will debate policy as well as politics. I hope above all that we can create an online community that will be exciting and appealing to younger readers, a generation often repelled by today’s mainstream conservatism. . . . We will be experimenting with video commentaries – and offering a very much expanded “bookshelf” section.
Yadda, yadda, yadda. “Young readers . . . repelled by today’s mainstream conservatism” — they’re called Democrats, David. Surely he doesn’t plan to allow any “unpatriotic” types to contribute.
He doesn’t say who will be bankrolling his project, but another group blog — will Christopher Buckley, Ken Adelman, Kathleen Parker and Peggy Noonan be among those making it “exciting and appealing to younger readers”? — isn’t exactly the cutting edge of societal evolution. I already contribute to two group blogs (AmSpecBlog and RightWingNews), so I guess I’m ahead of the game here. Also, since he’s going for the younger readers, does this mean new competition for the Anne Hathaway cleavage market share?
