Which of the following quotes by the founder of modern conservatism best encapsulates the current strife between the conservative Republican establishment and the conservative Republican presumptive nominee?  Remember, your vote (and William F. Buckley’s) count.


A.  “I profoundly believe it takes a lot of practice to be a moral slob.”

B.  “I won’t insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.”

C.   “You know, I’ve spent my entire life separating the Right from the kooks.”
