    As I told Platt, it was more a joke than anything else, an expression of my surprise, but Paglia, Bloom, Rorty, and Derrida have more philosophically in common than I think many here think (at the least, Bloom, Rorty, and Derrida) and I don't think any of the four are conservative (not sure about Bloom), meaning that if conservatives like them, its probably more because of a misconstrual.
