"If you're trying to change minds and influence people it's probably not a good idea to say that virtually all elected Democrats are liars, but what the hell."

Today's Top Ten
Ten Random, Politically Incorrect Thoughts
Victor Davis Hanson finishes, "Well, with that done—I feel much better." Me too. Here's a randomly selected sample.
9. As I wrote earlier, the shrill Left is increasingly far more vicious
these days than the conservative fringe, and about like the crude Right
of the 1950s. Why? I am not exactly sure, other than the generic notion
that utopians often believe that their anointed ends justify brutal
means. Maybe it is that the Right already had its Reformation when
Buckley and others purged the extremists—the Birchers, the
neo-Confederates, racialists, the fluoride-in-the-water conspiracists,
anti-Semites, and assorted nuts.—from the conservative ranks in a way
the Left has never done with the 1960s radicals that now reappear in
the form of Michael Moore, Bill Ayers, Cindy Sheehan, Moveon.org, the
Daily Kos, etc. Not many Democrats excommunicated Moveon.org for its
General Betray-Us ad. Most lined up to see the premier of Moore’s
mythodrama. Barack Obama could subsidize a Rev. Wright or email a
post-9/11 Bill Ayers in a way no conservative would even dare speak to
a David Duke or Timothy McVeigh—and what Wright said was not all that
different from what Duke spouts. What separated Ayers from McVeigh was
chance; had the stars aligned, the Weathermen would have killed
hundreds as they planned.
PS- We conservative fringers prefer to call ourselves Pathfinders.
