Powerline commends to our attention a terrific interview of Paul Cantor by Bill Kristol. Normally I'm not a big fan of 90-minute interview videos and wish someone had just transcribed them, but this one's worth the time. Cantor is a Shakespearean scholar who long ago turned his attention to American popular culture. The whole thing is worth watching if only for the discussion of Hobbesian vs. Lockeian westerns. And who can resist a guy, especially a grizzled old conservative, who liked the instantly forgotten "John of Cincinnati"? At a dream dinner party, you'd be seated next to him.
