Unsung Hero

Most left-leaning (and more than a few libertarian) websites were (understandably) upset over the asinine TIPS proposal put forth by the Bush Administration, under which millions of Americans would essentially become professional snitches. Lost in the sound and fury was yet another proposal to create a national ID card. Both plans were killed on Thursday, but few of the sites identified who was responsible for killing them—Dick Armey, the House Majority Leader, despised by the left for his unalloyed conservatism. The Washington Times, however, did note his actions, and praised him in today's editorial.

I haven't come upon a blog or a commentator of any political stripe that approved of the TIPS idea; at last, something we can all hate together.
