"August is upon us, beaches beckon, and Michele Bachmann has set the self-improvement bar high. She recently told the Wall Street Journal, 'When I go on vacation and I lay [sic] on the beach, I bring von Mises." The congresswoman may be the first person ever to dribble sun lotion on the section of Ludwig von Mises' Human Action wherein the Austrian economist (1881-1973) discussed 'the formal and aprioristic character of praxeology.' Autodidacts less exacting than Bachmann should spill sand on the pages of The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong With America by Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch." [editor's note: Mr. Will's arched eyebrow is all over this, but otherwise it seems a pretty good review of the book - SAT] (07/29/11)
