"Elizabeth Warren really hit a nerve among conservatives with her winning message about the the social contract and America's economy. ... this drew responses the right by everyone from Paul Ryan to George Will and (of course) the Massachusetts Republican Party. ... Turns out, they'd have been better off reaching for their bookshelves ... [and] their dog-eared copies of Adam Smith's An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, in which the father of 'the invisible hand' wrote the crib notes for Elizabeth Warren's stump speech." [editor's note: Mr. Heath goes on to cite Thomas Paine and Abe Lincoln to make his case; an intriguing analysis - SAT] (11/02/11)
