Lots of good reading today. I don’t often recommend articles, but there are two (actually, three, but I won’t take up your time) especially worth noting. The first is Mark Hemingway’s very funny account of helping write the Democrat’s platform. But the reason to read it is not just the humor, but the splendid, terrible discovery he makes at the end: That if ideas are presented without “conservative” labels, liberals will agree with them. Splendid, for the obvious reason; and terrible, because labels aren’t going anywhere.
