Stopped Clock Paradox.

(Potential title for an episode of Big Bang Theory)

Maybe Barry wasn't much on compromise himself and was doing a bit of projecting?

The following is stated in a positive way. Still, if you read between the lines....

Wiki says that Goldwater inspired the modern libertarian movement. I once heard Libertarian Drew Carey describe a Libertarian as "a Republican who likes to smoke pot."

In the 1950s, though, Goldwater might have (but, AFAIK, did not) self-describe as a socially moderate, uber conservative who likes to drink and smoke cigarettes. That would have caused him to butt heads with the religious right of the Republican Party. (Before Roe v. Wade, more religious people were on both sides of aisle.) With both Goldwater and the religious right being doctrinaire, "sternly-worded" clashes were probably inevitable.

You have inspired me to embark upon an OP about Goldwater. I started it, but will not finish today. I will post it soon, though.
