“SC nears the Abyss”
South Carolinian Wayne Clark wrote up a timely rant on Governor Sanford’s unblinking adherence to an ideology of inhuman subservience to the Free Market:
The heart of the problem – theirs and ours – is not that our political leaders are conservatives, but rather that they are inflexible ideologues wedded to a failed economic system. They are generals fighting not the last war but the one before that. Ronald Reagan has fallen off his horse. The invisible hand of Adam Smith has slapped us down. The free market first ran amuck then ran aground. Government is now regarded as the solution, not the problem, and this sticks in their craws like day-old cornbread.
Not an analysis, but precient.
