I have been reading The Economist quite a bit lately. One might think with a name like that you’d find clear-eyed, conservative content; not at all. It is a product from across the pond and is chock full of some of the most well-worn liberal drivel in print. Last year they ran an article in which they made the case, not tongue-in-cheek, that the only thing wrong with Obama’s brilliant foreign policy programs is that they simple didn’t work. Other than that they were remarkable. The Economist has drunk of the global warming kool aid and gone back for seconds. This exposure to “progressive” aspirations tarted up as journalism is not isolated. But since the articles are well written the periodical has inspired me to a new mission.
