Holtz-Eakin Trashes Heritage, AEI

Liberal blogger Matthew Yglesias notes that the top economic advisor to John McCain’s failed presidential campaign, Douglas Holtz-Eakin, is whining again:

Holtz-Eakin is . . . developing a proposal for a new think tank that he describes as a “Center for American Progress for the right” – a reference to the liberal think tank that has supplied staff and policy proposals to the Obama administration and developed new ways to market its ideas. . . .
The irony, of course, is that the Center for American Progress itself was developed as a liberal answer to the Heritage Foundation, the conservative think tank that has been a source of Republican policy ideas for decades. But Holtz-Eakin says established think tanks of the right, like Heritage and the American Enterprise Institute, were “not helpful” during the McCain campaign because they weren’t politically engaged or innovative in their media strategies.

Or maybe conservative think thanks weren’t “helpful” because John McCain didn’t take their advice, because John McCain is not a conservative. Loser.
