New conservative policy shop to be headed by a one-time supporter of cap-and-trade!!
I don’t normally agree with the uber-conservative American Spectator — and vice versa (see here). But there is, as they say, a first time for everything.
In a piece titled, “Norm Coleman’s Right-Wing CAP,” their assistant managing editor writes about the Center for American Progress (CAP), where I work:
Another feature that sets CAP apart from the right-wing organizations is its messaging operation. It was a leader in sending out a daily briefing and using blogs to disseminate research, which are both now common practices among think tanks. But it also took the unusual step of hiring professional bloggers to spread its ideas. Joseph Romm, a giant among environmental experts, blogs for their climateprogess.org. And CAP hired Matt Yglesias, a prominent young liberal blogger, away from the Atlantic to blog under their umbrella.
Thanks. Let me tell you this kind of thing is very helpful around performance evaluation time.
I do, of course, have to correct one mistake here, which long-time readers may spot….
