When I was a kid, it was common wisdom that conservatives were stupid. But I grew up watching Firing Line with my father, so I knew that there were two intelligent conservatives in the world: William F. Buckley, Jr. and my dad. My one ambition in life was to grow up to become the world's third intelligent conservative. Of course, when I grew up, I found that the position had already been filled (along with the next several million positions).
What's your story?
