Well-known conservative writer David French recently wrote a National Review article criticizing the idea that conservatives should become more openly partisan. In that article, French mentions a call in which he was told to “put on that red jersey and get on the field”, something he believes is politically and morally wrong.
Ironically, he starts the piece by listing the very reasons why it makes sense to don Republican red. Democrats regularly wear the blue jersey in their effort to guide the direction of the country. In the past, they stood united against questions about various Clinton improprieties. Now, they stand united against Republican tax bills, health plans, and executive orders. In the future, they will stand united against any item on the president’s agenda, just because.
