Remembering P.J. O'Rourke

Nowadays P.J. O'Rourke is a beloved and oft-cited conservative author and commentator. In another lifetime, he was a frequent contributor to the National Lampoon, during its golden era.

O'Rourke was a funny liber-conservative, once. (Not necessarily when that article was written...) Now he's just another tired screed-masher.
