Quote of the Month: Rick Perlstein

SALON: It always seemed to me that the rhetoric you’re talking about is often removed from any policy goal; it’s more of an affirmation of identity.
RP: Well, ultimately, conservatism is about a tribal identity and not any particular policy goal. It’s about dividing the world into the saved and the damned, and policies are secondary or tertiary to that project.
