Wow… that is literally the best explication of conservatism that I’ve ever heard. Coming from an extremely conservative family, this fills in a lot of blanks that suddenly seem glaringly obvious.
It makes no sense to me either, but there is a huge anti-intellectual streak in the US. It’s concentrated in areas with extremely high religiosity, like the rural midwest, where I am.

I agree very much with this. One of the better bosses I’ve had is someone I’d never spend time with. He’s Sheldon Cooper without the personality and wit. But he was really good at his job.
I think it’s supposed to be a way of saying “friend who cares about me” which is important because there really isn’t a lot of utility in a smart politician.
