About this whole Mitch Daniels dust-up...

At first blush, we could understand but after closer inspection, we're not really getting the general freak-out on the right over Indiana governor Mitch "the Knife" Daniels' refusal to pursue Right To Work laws in this year's legislative agenda.

Here's his brief but entirely sensible response to his critics.

Executive summary: There's plenty I'm pursuing that is going to be tough enough to accomplish (see: fleeing Democratic lawmakers) without piling on with RTW.

Our own take: What might fit other states like Wisconsin may not fit states like Indiana. The fact of the matter is that the entitlement reform revolution will have to be in degrees. Any sort of purity test is doomed to counter-productivity. Everyone needs to just chill.
