"A clear-eyed, cool-headed, non-ideological pragmatism, untouched by any pre-existing wish lists or biases.
"I'm being sarcastic, obviously. Yet of course there are many, many smart liberals - from Paul Krugman to, well, Barack Obama - who would say that . . . whatever its faults the stimulus bill is ultimately non-ideological: Shoveling vast amounts of money out the door is simply what you do in circumstances like these if you want to avoid utter economic calamity. The money-shovelers are empiricists, in other words, and their opponents are know-nothings."
-- Ross Douthat
I'm liking Douthat a little better nowadays. This is a Change I can believe in.
