Which is more annoying: Leftists who in the wake of Climategate have suddenly discovered a love for public choice theory or libertarians who in the wake of Climategate have studiously ignored public choice theory?

Whatever your answer to that question, I hope it suggests that public choice theory is not a complete description of the world, and that ideology remains a powerful influence on the decisions of politicians.

P.S. This post should in no way imply that all leftists and all libertarians have behaved disingenuously.
