I knew the author, Jonathan Rauch, in college. Everyone called him The Twat
and made merciless fun of him, because he never had an original thought in
his life and was obnoxious, socially inept, and pretentious without even
being very good at it. I suppose that qualifies him well as a mainstream
pundit.  You'll note how transparently he apes Thomas Friedman.
