Conscience of a Conservative

Michael Gerson has become the conscience of the Republican Party.
Today, he has a post about the consequences of the GOP's harsh anti-immigrant stance.
Last week, he looked at their disregard for social contract.

Gerson's is a reasonable voice in a party deeply commited to being unreasonable. He is to the GOP on issues of compassion what we pro-life Dems are to our party on the issue of abortion. But politics and cultures change, and they only change when reasonable people raise their voice. Kudos to Gerson for staying and fighting the good fight.
