I just happen to stumble upon this interesting New Yorker interview with William F. Buckley, Jr - a supporter of Bush, but irritated at his Big C - Compassion and little c - conservatisim:
“Government is now 20.9 per cent of G.D.P., and that’s bad stuff,” he said. “Drink to that!”
Yes I will. 1994 seems like so so long ago.
