Don't think Sean Hannity qualifies. He typically prefers less conservative guests, and has even been unfair to at least one real conservative.--Andy Schlafly 21:55, 3 November 2010 (EDT)

Sarah Palin

Added a few words before Sarah Palin since everyone else listed has (except for St. Paul). Not sure if Vice Presidential running mate in 2008 or former governor of Alaska or something else was the way to go, went with former governor (first thing listed on her page on conservapedia)

I agree...normal appellation should be last and highest office actually elected to. Good call! --ṬK/Admin/Talk 14:17, 7 December 2010 (EST)

A recommendation

I think it would really help illustrate the point if a table were drawn up that listed all of the characteristics of a movement conservative (pro-life, strong defense, pro-business, low taxes, 2nd amendment, Christian) and showed all of the movement conservatives filling out the list, then showed where different cafeteria conservatives fall. I don't think that I'm philosophically savvy enough to do this on my own. Any takers? --DrDean 15:16, 26 August 2011 (EDT)

Maybe a good list of people to look at would be the authors/editors of intellectually serious conservative publications, like First Things or Commentary magazine in the US, or Quadrant here in Australia. Although, it would probably be a somewhat unfair comparison, since authors and intellectuals have the luxury of holding to an intellectually pure position, while political leaders sometimes have to make real world compromises, and choose the possible over the perfect.

Both suggestions above are good ones. That said, some might be surprised at how some of the authors of conservative publications are not entirely conservative.--Andy Schlafly 00:42, 27 August 2011 (EDT)
