Quote of the Day

Walter Russell Mead writes in The American Interest about the increasing isolation of the liberal media/academy/foundations clique, increasingly out of touch with the rest of America. Mead subtitles his article as follows, and it's a decent abstract:
Never have liberal ideas been so firmly entrenched within America’s core elite institutions. Never have those institutions been so weak and uninfluential.
With apologies to W. B. Yeats, liberalism appears to be slouching toward irrelevancy.
