Wick Allison sided with Leo Linbeck against the centocracy. Daniel McCarthy advocated the old-school Jeffersonian approach to constitutional questions, Jordan Bloom brought back six takes from the Supreme Court, Scott McConnell was pleasantly surprised by the favorites losing, and Scott Galupo admired John Roberts’ clever maneuvers.

Rod Dreher championed southern superiority, forgot the Ten Commandments, received a letter from Greece, and detested our educational warehouses.

Doug Bandow found Kuwait’s crossroads, and Nan Levinson located the ethical wounds inflicted on trained-to-kill soldiers. Larison took issue with the Christian Science Monitor on Syria, salvaged realism, and challenged the notion of Romney’s open-minded foreign policy debates.
