David Weigel over at Reason writes about something that's music to my ears:
Jindal headhunted a Fortune 500 executive to run his state department of Labor and commanded him to prune it down. In response, the secretary came up with a plan for abolishing the department. This is what you fantasize about Republicans doing before they go and do things like hire Tom Ridge to lobby for the duct tape industry.THIS is the GOP that wins elections not the "compassionate conservative" garbage that Kristol, W, and the rest of the neocons have shoved down our throats for the past 8 years. Now if the Republicans could start abolishing departments at the federal level, I might come back to the fold.
