Conservatives cannot govern well for the same reason that vegetarians cannot prepare a world-class boeuf bourguignon: If you believe that what you are called upon to do is wrong, you are not likely to do it very well.I'm a vegetarian, and I'd have to agree. I don't even know what boeuf bourguignon is. I imagine it involves a substance called boeuf. Or beef.
The larger point, is however, a good one. Government is anathema to conservatives. Except for the fact that they use it to sustain the corporate model. And keep tabs on citizen movements opposed to concentrations of power.
Other than that, it's right on.
