This item is late, but last week, I was at it again on the Washington Monthly’s Political Animal. Here are three entries worth revisiting:
- The worldview of the tea party movement is completely ahistorical, which I suppose isn’t surprising to anyone.
- In the long term, a functioning parliamentary system would depend on a viable opposition, which the United States lacks at the moment.
- The federal insurance exchange shows how conservatism’s prophecies of governmental incompetence can become self-fulfilling (and this is something I will certainly keep writing about).
- Omniscience is metadata.
