Egads! I Agree With Billy Kristol!

This is dead-on:

....capitalism needs its strong defenders—but its defenders need also to be its constructive critics. The Tea Party was right. What's needed is a critique of Big Government above all, but also of Big Business and Big Finance and Big Labor (and Big Education and Big Media and all the rest)—and especially a critique of all those occasions when one or more of these institutions conspire against the common good. What's needed is a willingness to put Main Street (at least slightly) ahead of Wall Street, and a reform agenda for capitalism that strengthens it, alongside an even more dramatic reform agenda for government that limits it

Then, for crying out loud, he goes all.......ahhh.........Santorum:

...in laying out a way forward, conservatives might remember that Bain Capital isn’t capitalism, that capitalism by itself isn’t freedom, and that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in the Gospel of Wealth.

Doesn't mean I'll give him a pass on his WarParty credentials, but wow....

Remember that the other "Bigs" are part and parcel of Big Government. That is, without Big Government, they all find it difficult to exist.
