Nobody cares anymore...

Regarding Alan Alda's West Wing character's political views, Radney Balko writes:
It's a sad state of affairs when the most eloquent defense of free markets, private initiative, and limited government uttered by a politician in two decades has come from a fictitious presidential candidate played by an actor with leftist politics.

Still, the West Wing staff ought to be credited. Not only did they not creat a caricature of a Republican, they created a better Republican than any currently serving in Washington.
It is odd, isn't it, that there doesn't seem to be a market for the free-market anymore? Where did the libertarians and quasi-libertarians of, say, the Goldwater era *go*? There aren't really *that* many evangelical Christians....
