Ross Douthat on the ‘New Reformers’ by Political Observer

Mr. Douthat continues in his rhetorical mood of fabulism, that he expressed in his essay Call Me Vlad , with his latest entry titled Good Populism, Bad Populism. In sum Mr. D. presents the argument that the Republican Nihilists are not just ideological obstructionists but are, in fact, the future enactors  of ‘reform’ . Now, given that these same future oriented pols have just voted to de-fund the Heritage Foundation Health-Care aka Obama Care, how might a reader interpret the idea of ‘reform’ as expressed by Mr. D?

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
