Just as a quick sample:

-Ross Douthat
-John Schwenkler
-David Brooks
-Megan McArdle (although she's a bit more libertarian)
-Tyler Cowen
-Daniel Larison

The liberal hysteria over the kinds of folks you mentioned (Limbaugh, Coulter, etc) is kind of a self-fullfilling prophecy in my opinion. To be quite honest, they appeal to the Dana Hunter's of the world. Those prone to anger and outrage. If you want to really understand what's going on in the intellectual halls of conservatism you have to dig a bit deeper than Fox News.

Likewise, I don't depend on Keith Olberman and Chris Matthews for the intellectual side of liberalism.
