Rick, this is what the right wing does. They create these Heritage Foundations and American Enterprise Institutes
on the Hudsonand the Hudson Institute. They just sit around raising money, right wing money, to keep these guys in senior fellowships, so they're ready to write op-ed pieces to fill the pages of the “Wall Street Journal.”
That's what they do all day, isn't it? It‘s a big money scheme to spend enough money to keep these guys typing, so that the right wing stuff keeps coming out in the “Wall Street Journal” and some times the “Washington Post” and the “New York Times.”
These foundations and institutes hire very bright folks paid for by lots of right wing money, and their job is to put together intelligent sounding material that twists the truth a bit, then distorts it further, then bends it to the breaking point. Very clever folks. I have nothing but admiration for their intellects. Too bad they can't find more constructive (or should I say less destructive?) ways to spend their time.
