BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR. Sometimes mocking the earnest is the most effective approach. For example, the "To Be Governed" section of the March-April 2008 Cato Policy Report (.PDF) quotes Senator McCain's inclusive call to "independents, Libertarians, vegetarians, Trotskyites" under the headline TROTSKYITES PREFER TO BE CALLED NEOCONSERVATIVES, and reacts to a report on women in politics in Rwanda, Vietnam, and Cuba with ALL THOSE WHO'D LIKE TO LIVE IN RWANDA, CUBA, OR VIETNAM, RAISE YOUR HANDS. There's no shortage of material for Cato, or for any other policy report of any other point of view.
