Madness Abounds...on the Left!

In case you needed more evidence that the left is a study in madness, consider this piece from Mark Ambinder at The Atlantic, titled "Have Conservatives Gone Mad?"

Here is an excerpt:
It is absolutely a condition of the age of the triumph of conservative personality politics, where entertainers shouting slogans are taken seriously as political actors, and where the incentive structures exist to stomp on dissent and nuance, causing experimental voices to retrench and allowing a lot of people to pretend that the world around them is not changing. The obsession with ACORN, Climategate, death panels, the militarization of rhetoric, Saul Alinsky, Chicago-style politics, that TAXPAYERS will fund the bailout of banks -- these aren't meaningful or interesting or even relevant things to focus on. (The banks will fund their own bailouts.)
He willingly disparages the Tea Party movement with his dismissal of our concerns and complains about the "conservative echo chamber" having an unhealthy effect on our positions.

In a way, I like his way of thinking. It keeps the left in denial about what is going to happen come November.

Hat Tip: Legal Insurrection

  1. And also what could happen shortly after. Imagine Ambinders's reaction to Obamacare being repealed by a constitutional amendment next summer.

    The states created the federal government when they adopted the US Constitution. The Founding Fathers knew a centralized federal government might overreach, so they wrote into the US Constitution the ability to amend it without consent from the federal government (see Article V). Since, the US Constitution is the supreme law of the land, the states could repeal Obamacare through a Constitutional amendment (in non-legalese: AMENDMENT 28 – Obamacare is repealed). If we make this an issue in state level elections in November and turn enough states pro-repeal, we could repeal Obamacare by next summer! More details at Spread the word. It would be a beautiful moment for the Tea Party movement to see Obamacare repealed in the ultimate expression of Federalism – a state-led and enacted repeal of Obamacare – A Constitutional SMACKDOWN!
