Mark Levin chimes in:
Also, count me among those few here who want to thank the House Republicans for taking a bold stand against what had been a stampede on a scale I have never before witnessed on matters of huge consequence. Conservatism is more than a quaint belief-system to be embraced and debated over donuts at Starbucks. It is more than a list of talking points. It is the foundation of the civil society. The liberal uses crises, real or manufactured, to expand the power of government at the expense of the individual and private property. He has spent, in earnest, 70 years evading the Constitution's limits on governmental power. If conservatives don't stand up to this, who will? If they don't offer serious alternatives that address the current circumstances AND defend the founding principles, who will? The House Republicans have done both. And I, for one, thank them.

Interesting thing about Levin. I don't care much for his radio show. It's a bunch of shouting down and way-overused catch phrases, and is generally not very thoughtful. Overall, I find it rather obnoxious.

But he's great in writing. He's principled, and makes his points well, and he's one of the NR contributors I probably agree with most.

Probably a good thing I haven't heard his radio show... but yeah, it was a good piece.
