The Mysterious Stranger, by David Brooks
The newly liberated Dean doesn't worry about having a coherent political philosophy. There is a parlor game among Washington pundits called How Liberal Is Howard Dean? One group pores over his speeches, picks out the things no liberal could say and argues that he's actually a centrist. Another group picks out the things no centrist could say and argues that he's quite liberal.Why it's almost as if this guy doesn't hold to any particular political dogma. Oh my god, what a rotten scoundrel.
