Political and social observations from two aspiring hedgehogs who love the Isaiah Berlin essay.

The Washington Times, not exactly a liberal rag, has the story. Read this and tell me why Fred is so intoxicating to some conservatives.
Interestingly, Fred's current position on McCain-Feingold (which, the Times reports, Thompson often called "McCain-Feingold-Thompson") is essentially that "it seemed like a good idea at the time." I wonder if his the folks who are so ardent about Thompson's candidacy will ever consider him a flip-flopper on that issue?
But maybe none of that matters when we've got Arthur Branch is running for president.
