Ah David Broder, please try to come up with sad analogies in eulogizing Jack Kemp:
Eric Cantor, the young Virginian who may come closest to Kemp’s level of intellectual ambition and political energy in the current Congress, played host at the first of a promised series of policy sessions, along with former governors Jeb Bush of Florida and Mitt Romney of Massachusetts.
That listening tour thing at the suburban pizza joint he’s already abandoned?
Yeah, good show of ambition there, caving to Rush Limbaugh. And speaking of such…
“Rush has got ideas. He’s got following. He believes in the conservative principles that many of us believe in — of lower taxes, or making sure that we turn back towards a focus on entrepreneurialism in this country, to promoting innovation and not stamping that out by overreacting, if you will, which this town often does, to crisis,” Cantor said.
Real thinker that one.
