James Wolcott Admits Defeat in an Argument

In other words, he calls Arnold Kling a racist: A few days ago notice was taken (I'm practicing my passive voice) of economist Arnold Kling's contention that the Obama stimulus plan was actually "reparations" in disguise. Given the complexion of our new president, this was interpreted as injecting a needless bit of race-baiting into the economic debate, raising the specter of a million Jeremiah Wrights marching on the capital mall with outstretched hands, demanding their cut of the action. One of the great advantages of seeing the race card played is that it tells me which side realizes it's losing the argument. Thanks, James. You saved folks a lot of time.
