The Economist’s Lexington column hails a group of “Young Guns” — Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy — as a rare breed of American politicians more interested in policy than propaganda.

Alas, they still fall prey to the demonization of the left that passes for right-wing thought these days. An improvement over Sarah Palin’s blissful ignorance and scare tactics, sure, but color me skeptical.
