Kindred on the battlefield of culture. Brothers in the fight of moral excellency. Trained and battle-hardened soldiers on the front lines of American society.
Dinesh D’Souza and David Limbaugh are two men I respect greatly, both for their principles and for their courage.
Of all the substantive columnists I read regularly, these two are those I read the most reliably, popping out of Google Reader to read them on their home sites more consistently than any other writers of the hundreds of articles I peruse each day.
Recent columns from each of these two are noteworthy and well worth reading and I encourage all to add them to their regular reading.

It is not dirty but obligatory to draw distinctions between you and your opponents. Dirty politics is distorting one’s record or spreading lies about a candidate.
- Dinesh D’Souza – Are Atheists Cultural Christians?
In The God Delusion, Dawkins portrayed the Christian God as a wicked, avaricious, capricious, genocidal maniac. Dawkins even blasted Jesus for such offenses as speaking harshly to his mother.
