Here are some comments that you can fully understand only by going to the Front Porch Republic site under “Part Deux.” They’re meant in complete love and respect:

This is way too much to read. So only five comments: 1. Where can I get some of that french fried latte? 2. Even Dreher didn’t think what I said about him was “dyspetic” and Caleb was quite willing to publishing it. It’s just that a guy who hangs out in wine bars with his laptop and has an easy job has no business presenting himself as a sacred exemplar of human excellence in our time (especially in comparison to hardworking men in women with large families and real jobs who shop at WalMart and don’t need to find deeper meaning in diaper changing and aren’t nearly as oligarchic as he thinks from his elevated perespective). 3. Obviously I like Rod and agree with him on lots of issues like caregiving and all that. We share an admiration of the virtue of charity, which can’t be accounted for by rationalism ancient or modern. 4. I rarely comment on Crunchies and only in fun; I wish you were a significant movement, actually. My fun has to do with how tough it is to be countercultural these days or more than another “lifestyle option.” So I feel your pain. 5. You may have noticed there is no real postmodern conservative movement and that if it’s with us or against us about everyone is against us.
