Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
Feel the Foreboding  —  If you've read my editors' blog posts over the years, you likely know that I am at heart a small-c conservative and instinctive institutionalist.  There are up and down sides to that way of approaching the world.  But it's a posture that colors my reactions to most things.
