One of the odder, though probably not very significant, things about the current political debate is that recently I’ve been seeing rightwingers abandonning the traditional — and correct — conservative interpretation of the Spanish Civil War in favor of a rather dated leftwing take. It takes him a little while to get there, but Ross Douthat explains it all. I guess — maybe — this has something to do with the Trotskyite origins of neoconservatism or something.
