Hey John Mackey! - News Flash!

I have posted on the work of political scientist Keith Poole several times before, but here is an update. Note the punchline: "[B]ased on President Obama’s announced positions on actual legislation, we find that he is closer to the ideological center than any president since LBJ." Note too that Keith, while a smart college professor, hardly is a raving left-winger. So, the next time some conservative or, better, some libertarian "conscious capitalist," whines to you about Obama the "socialist" (or worse), laugh a good one and, when you regain your composure, ask them to check their meds.
