Comment: Pat is always a puzzle.

(See in situ)

Pat is always a puzzle.

I think his emotional optimism too frequently runs counter to his more sober analyses. This prevents him from ever being of any use as a genuine MSM advocate of small government. Remember, he worked for the Keynesian Warmonger-in-chief Tricky Dick. Pat always seems on the verge of putting it together, but can never quite stop himself from periodically retreating.
