Great Relearning?

Does this sound to anyone else like the ravings of a coherent lunatic?

Having restored decency to the White House, President Bush now has a mandate to affect policy that will promote a more decent society, through both politics and law. His supporters want that, and have given him a mandate in their popular and electoral votes to see to it. Now is the time to begin our long, national cultural renewal ("The Great Relearning," as novelist Tom Wolfe calls it) — no less in legislation than in federal court appointments. It is, after all, the main reason George W. Bush was reelected.

"Long, national cultural renewal"? "In legislation" and "in federal court appointments"? Mein gott. This guy is the definition of conservative bogeyman. What's happened to the libertarian strain in the right? Sounds like it's being bled out...

Also, Tom Wolfe or not, "The Great Relearning" sounds like something authored by Mao.
