I’VE MENTIONED THE LEFTY COUNTERPOINT TO THE TEA PARTIES, Joe Trippi & Zephyr Teachout’s A New Way Forward. They’ll be marching this weekend to urge that banks that are “too big to fail” be broken up. This makes sense to me; I’ve said the same thing myself, as has Jerry Pournelle. Michelle Malkin is less supportive of their effort, and I’ll admit that there’s a bit of me-tooism here. But that kind of imitation is a mark of success — just as when the Beatles inspired the Monkees. . . . I predict, though, that the New Way Forward campaign will get more sympathetic, and probably just more, press than the Tea Parties even though by all appearances it will be much, much smaller.
