Huck and Lasch
Mr. Postmodern Conservative thinks that one implication of Dr. Pat and me posting on Lasch is to display our reservations about Huckabee. It’s true enough that Huck is too therapeutic (and a bit narcissistic); that’s a characteristic vice of Evangelicals. But he’s also quite populist and pretty anti-meritocratic for a Republican. The big questions: Is he realistic? Does he promote living responsibly in light of the truth? It’s doubtful, in fact, that Huck’s track record would have impressed Mr. Lasch all that much.
