The Standard, Weakly: Yes, there's less whining than expected in the Weekly Standard's piece on Libertarian spoilers in the midterm election, but it's the same old nonetheless. One paragraph begins with this transparency: " Although both Republicans and Libertarians support lower taxes, smaller government, and a free-market economy ..." Hmmm. That description of Republicans sounds so ... 1994. On the cusp of the great failure of Keynesian policy, Nixon famously declared, "We're all Keynesians now." Likewise, we're all Democrats -- er, compassionate conservatives -- now.
