Like this column but wish author would have mentioned Ron Paul, only political figure with principles and courage to rail against big government "conservatives." Levin hates Paul despite fact that he and Paul say many of the same things. Paul however is fearless in criticizing military industrial complex, nation building follies and undeclared wars. Levin, Hannity and Limbaiugh are and were biggest cheerleaders for decade long wars in Afganistan and Iraq and are masters of fear mongering to get our nation on brink of more wars. History will judge whose views were wisest on these wars and borrowing they required. Paul is the only real limited government political figure I know of and you see how he is treated by the GOP establishment.
