National Review is very good today. Check out this review of a new biography of William Jennings Bryan; I plan to read the book when I get hold of it. Furriners might be interested in Bryan, as he's virtually unknown outside the United States. They've also got a piece comparing Teddy Roosevelt to George W. Bush. Both articles stress that both Bryan and TR would have been sympathetic to today's Republicans, despite Roosevelt's Progressivism and Bryan's populism. And urbane paleocon John Derbyshire explains why he has some doubts about Bush on a personal level.
