Why I Read Krauthammer

Charles and I disagree on a few things.  A very few things.  But that's gonna happen.

Far more often than not, the man is a font of principled verbal clarity.
In the private sector, the capitalist knows that when he negotiates with the union, if he gives away the store, he loses his shirt. In the public sector, the politicians who approve any deal have none of their own money at stake. On the contrary, the more favorably they dispose of union demands, the more likely they are to be the beneficiary of union largess in the next election. It's the perfect cozy setup.
It's clarity we need to win this fight. And by "this fight" I don't mean Wisconsin alone. I mean the bigger one for the heart and soul of this country.
