The Centrist Mountain

Amba reports on a meeting of the Centrist Coalition. Given the crying need for some alternative to the ossified left and right, it's a shame this gathering resembled, in her piquant phrase, "an early read-through of an existentialist play about the Last Supper."

But it's fun to read her descriptions of fellow attendees, including some whom readers here will recognize, like MichaelReynolds, whom she describes as "an incendiary bomb wrapped in chamois cloth," a quip he ought to put in the template for his Web site. Have you ever notices, "Michael Reynolds" is "H.L. Mencken" spelled sideways?
