I was at an establishment in the early evening yesterday, and the trio next to me were talking politics. They were an example, once again, of the problem with NPR-And-New-York-Times-Reasonable-Liberals. Fairly well-informed, but fairly well-informed by polite Newshour duels between good friends BoBo and EJ and thoughtful columns by reasonable intelligent centrists like Tom Friedman. The one guy stated that what we really needed was a third party, a party of the center. You know who he'd been reading, and it wasn't my Wanker of the Decade award presentations.
