Mount Vapid Statement

I agree with Jacob Sullum and Jesse Walker, and with David Frum, who from different standpoints converge on the view that the Mount Vernon Statement of "conservative beliefs, values and principles" is meaningless schlock. Hopelessly vague, lacking any iota of self-criticism or self-reflection, and blandly invoking the founding fathers without the slightest awareness of their titanic disagreements, the thing is a document of vapidity, best soon forgotten.
