Finally put up a long-overdue permalink to the excellent Shakespeare's Sister. Helpful readers are encouraged to head over to her site and apologize for my tardiness.
Also, you guys should read Tomasky's piece on progressivism's estrangement from philosophy. One thing I think he omits is that, in addition to talking strategy, we talk a lot of policy, and we generally mistake the latter for philosophy. I think that has something to do with empiricism becoming a stealth philosophy for liberals, but that's a side issue.
