David Frum's New Majority

David Frum’s new opinion website New Majority debuted yesterday and I find the beginning auspicious. The writing is good, particularly Frum’s own intro for what “shoulda been” Barack Obama’s inaugural speech. (I know I wrote earlier that inaugural addresses count for little in these parlous times, but a tad of inspiration never hurts.) Regular readers of this site will not be surprised that I also applaud James Kirchik’s New Majority post of yesterday: Give Up the Losing Fight on Gay Rights, GOP. [Okay, there you go – promoting gay marriage again.ed. Okay, I’ll make a deal with you. You decide who you marry and I decide who I marry. Er… not sure about that… how about I decide both?-ed. Talk about “above your pay grade.”]
