Robert's List of Reasonable and Reasonably Honest Conservatives
I want to see Krugman's list
OK to avoid offending too many people, I will restrict my list to bloggers, pundits and politicians. I won't try to list reasonable and reasonably honest conservative economists -- I know too many. I count people who call themselves libertarians. I am not going to list personal friends (friends -- I like to keep them).
Hmmm this is difficult. OK economist pundits count.
Eugene Volokh (not reasonable re appropriate punishment of an Iranian murderer)
David Brooks (not always honest)
Arnold Kling (not really reasonable but very honest)
Olympia Snowe (not really conservative or honest but I'm getting desperate)
Scott McClellan (not really et. but gets extra points for near honesty in a press secretary)
Richard Clarke (oh you don't think he's conservative -- read "Against all Enemies")
Uh oh. Many of these are economists after all. Also many are not going to be considered conservative for long. It is pretty much not allowed to be both reasonable and reasonably honest.
I'm sure I missed some. Suggestions in comments are welcome.
I fear that I will be crossing names off this list. I predict that some will cease to be reasonably honest and some will cease to be conservatives.
update: Andrew Samwick
update II: Oh how embarrassing. I left off Julian Sanchez even though I said libertarians count.
Also thanks to Alphonse in comments I add
