Quote of the Day, Early Edition

We reserve the right to revise and extend our remarks. But for now, this sums up both our current climate, and where conservatives, libertarians, Tea Partiers, et al must aim for, going forward:

“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”

Milton Friedman
