RUNNING FOR CONGRESS on an Amity Shlaes platform.
UPDATE: A reader emails: “What is absolutely staggering at the link is the vitriol in the comments directed not only at the candidate Gibson, but the author of the piece as well. Out of the box, the comments run towards ‘Rabid Blue State’ Blue. What is staggering is not how hateful the comments are, but the near-uniformly poor quality of the expression. I smell fear.” Indeed. I liked the guy who wants to run Gibson’s thesis through “anti-plagerism software.” Yeah, that “plagerism” is a real problem . . . .
ANOTHER UPDATE: A reader suggests the vitriol is explained in this essay.
