The author is writing about another conservative government, but it is truly the hallmark of all modern conservative governments, from Harris, to Bush, to Harper:

  1. Yeah, It must be hard to govern when you don't believe it doesn't work at all. Which brings we to this quote and article:

    "Conservatives cannot govern well for the same reason that vegetarians cannot prepare a world-class boeuf bourguignon: If you believe that what you are called upon to do is wrong, you are not likely to do it very well."
