David Frum winces:
This story is another example of the harm done by allowing talk radio & Fox rather than elected officials and aspiring candidates to define the GOP. Anybody heard any objection to the escrow fund from Mitt Romney? Has Mitt Daniels termed it a “shakedown”? Bobby Jindal seems cool with the idea, ditto Mitt McConnell. But these real leaders are crowded out by people trying to bump ratings a point or two by inciting another prime time hour’s worth of anti-Obama indignation.
