On the political brilliance of Samuel Adams
Sam Adams is one of the key founders who hasn't gotten nearly the attention he deserves given his importance in the movement for American independence. Unlike his cousin John Adams, there hasn't been a major popular biography of Sam to break into current consciousness. Conservative writer and biographer of many of the founders Richard Brookhiser has a short post over at National Review's blog The Corner that points out some of Sam Adams' brilliance in working in the cause of ordered liberty. Well worth a read.
