I hope I’m not jeopardizing E.D. Kain’s perch at New Majority (congrats, E.D.!), but I do take issue with David Frum’s selective appreciation for one of my favorite 19th century political movements. In addition to defending free trade, sound money, and a meritocratic civil service, the Mugwumps were also noted anti-imperialists. I wonder if Frum will rediscover that aspect of their historic legacy?
