    Adam Smith talked about morality being part of capitalism. And of course generations later it was all explained away. I am sure this can be all explained away too.
    I saw the guy on Colbert last night. Colbert didn't give him a chance. He does that when he's not prepared well enough.

    "Socialist" I am sure is part of Sandel's description.
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    it was pretty funny to watch Arianna shout him down last week

    I think the point with Colbert is that he illustrates the hypocrisy of the Right through absurdity the part where it doesn't work is when the guests aren't fast enough on their feet to keep up ... Sandel in his interview I saw impresses me as an intellectual and not a witticist (sp)
