"I’ve spent more than a few columns predicting that the so-called tea partiers -- the grassroots populist movement that has our liberal elites in a frothy-mouthed lather -- will be logically led to call for major cuts in military spending -- and, by the sheer logic of their anti-spending, 'anti-government' position, eventually come to challenge our foreign policy of global intervention. The other day, as I listened to a fascinating panel discussion on Warren Olney‘s KCRW radio show To the Point on defense spending and deficit reduction, I had the distinct pleasure of hearing my prediction come true -- a lot sooner, I have to admit, than I ever imagined."
