Outstanding article. Required reading.

I think this fair critic has given us a summary of our new "creed" for the post un-declared Huckabee world of HA:

It follows:

He’ll be missed because he embodied a political persuasion that’s common in American life but rare in America’s political class. This worldview mixes cultural conservatism with economic populism: it’s tax-sensitive without being stridently antigovernment, skeptical of Wall Street as well as Washington, and as concerned about immigration, family breakdown and public morals as it is about the debt ceiling.

This combination of views represents one of the plausible middle grounds in American politics. You can find it in the Republican Party, among the evangelicals and Catholics whose votes made the presidencies of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush possible. You can find it among independent voters, particularly in what a recent Pew report calls the “disaffected” demographic, whose hostility to big government coexists with anxieties about corporate power and support for redistribution of wealth. And you find it in the Democratic Party as well — from the dwindling ranks of pro-life Catholic liberals to the “Bill Cosby conservatives” in the African-American middle class.

I think this is more "us" than anything else I have read.

Loved it until the very end - grab bag of gimmicks? I'm guessing that was mainly a swipe at the Fair Tax. :roll:

Those who are feeling raw may want to avoid the comments - a few make me wish I could do some un-Christian things to the posters - otherwise there are some good ones worth liking even if you don't feel up to leaving your own.
