A new conservative blog has popped up as an answer to DailyKos, and this one looks to offer an eclectic mix of culture and politics. Headed by's David Kuo, who ran Bush's Faith Based Initiative before he resigned in protest over the war in 2003, he has brought on some great writing talent: James Poulos, a PhD in politicial theory based in DC; and Peter Suderman, who are both active contributors to Reiham Salam's The American Scene.

These individuals are not progressives -- they are conservative (anti-tax, pro-small government), but they are sensible and pragmatic, a la Andrew Sullivan. Like the progressives, they recognize the folly of endless war, unchecked executive power, and shitting on the Constitution that mark the current Republican movement.
