more howl than argument

jonathan chait asks a question, but i'm afraid that's too much to ask from the modern conservative movement.

it's extremely hard to find a conservative argument that actually addresses the argument on the other side these days. that's why so many conservatives seem so detached from reality. i honestly don't know if krauthammer or wolfowitz (or any number of people criticizing obama's approach to the iran protests) have even a passing familiarity with the other side's reasoning. they don't seem to know that stuff for a lot of issues.
