Oxymoron at Work

Someone named Reihan is pinch-hitting for Ross Douthat. Reihan writes,
better to have a smart, coherent welfare system at the federal or at least state level than a patchwork that encourages the arbitrary and often harmful shifting around of the poor.
A politically designed, state-run "smart, coherent welfare system." There's an oxymoron, in spades. What does that say about Reihan? I report, you decide.

Hurry back, Ross.
