Coalitions of interest groups and philosophies

h/t Kevin Williamson, in his post at the The Corner Rand Paul and the Charisma Priniciple:

The Left is a coalition of economic interest groups, while the Right is a coalition of philosophies — conservatives would call them “principles,” and progressives would call them “narrow ideologies,” but that is the difference. Conservatives swoon when a senator reads from Hayek; liberals swoon when somebody proposes a tax increase on a politically unpopular target.
