Frum Splits From National Review

Whoosh. That didn't take so long. Maybe they can still get Ann Coulter back, assuming they haven't dumbed the discourse down too much. A magazine has got to be in bad shape when John Derbyshire is the most reasonable adult on the staff.

Mr. Frum said deciding to leave was amicable, but distancing himself from the magazine founded by his idol, Mr. Buckley, was not a hard decision. He said the controversy over Governor Palin’s nomination for vice president was “symbolic of a lot of differences” between his views and those of National Review’s.

“I am really and truly frightened by the collapse of support for the Republican Party by the young and the educated,” he said.
