National Review Has Removed the Ball-Gag from Jerry Taylor’s Mouth!

After eight years spent gagged and bound, Jerry Taylor is once again allowed on the stage. Matthew Yglesias welcomes him back:>Matthew Yglesias » Jerry Taylor, National Review, and Executive Power: I did a post this morning noting with amazement that the inauguration of Barack Obama was swiftly followed by a Corner post bemoaning excessive executive power, something that doesn’t seem to have been a big concern during the Bush years. I should, however, have been clear on the point that the author of the post, Jerry Taylor from the Cato Institute, hasn’t been engaged in any hypocrisy here. Cato and Cato personnel were always, and appropriately, very critical of the Bush administration’s actions in this regard. Taylor just wasn’t blogging at the Corner until very recently. But therein lies the rub. Conservatives are suddenly rediscovering this topic and reaching out to the Taylors of the world. It’s funny.Remember who your friends are, Jerry. They are not the people you are posting beside.
