I know that I seem at times obsessed with the 60s, and in trying to figure out  How they Matter to Us Now.  But in my defense, here’s down-to-earth Michael Barone , saying that the key to Mitt Romney is that the 60s did not touch his soul one bit.  There’s not an iota of postmodernism or “post-60s-ism” in his conservatism.  It’s like it’s still 1961.

In other words, for better and for worse, when we elect Mitt we will be essentially electing the guy from Blast from the Past.

Which sounds pretty cool, actually.
