Default Re: Take Three (Mickey Kaus & David Frum)

It would take quite a while to list all of the issues on which Kaus and I disagree, but I have to say, this is the most coherent that I've heard him for some time; ever since his discussion with Robert Wright about the "Ground Zero Mosque", I vacillated between thinking he was bonkers or he was just a bozo. Frum's a smart dude, but I can tell you what the kind of "institutional reform" he evidently has in mind will produce: higher public spending as a percentage of GDP. I've found at the root of a lot of "common sense solutions" from politicians is most often a compromise of "you get your honey to lure voters, and I get mine".
