    that Brookings was a fountain of "centrist" inside-the-beltway "common wisdom," with no visible liberal leanings at all. Who on earth dubbed them "liberal"? That's just nuts.

      This should come as no surprise.  Diane Ravitch began firmly in the Brookings camp and only in recent years has come to realize that their agenda was bunk.  They are who they are, and I'm surprised she was still affiliated with them and don't know why she would be.
