Manhattan right

The New York Observer has an interesting profile of the Manhattan Institute. The piece, by Jason Horowitz, has a bit of that anthropologist-among-the-natives tone with which non-right journalists often write about conservatives, including descriptions of what the interviewees are wearing ("pin-striped blazer...", "blouse and gray skirt...") and it blurs some ideological distinctions (is someone who posts about "Why I Am a Social Conservative" really part of the "culturally agnostic wing" of the Republican Party?). Still, it's noteworthy that people seem optimistic at the Manhattan Institute, and that Bobby Jindal is evidently listening to them.
