Annals of career "progressive" idiocy
Jeebus, it's been so long since I've looked at a D blog I didn't realize how badly the rot had set in. This doltish post from Booman really takes the biscuit:
(1) When Democrats and liberals notice that one of our own is unambiguously a scumbag, we reject that person.
(2) When one of our own is unambiguously a scumbag, we actually notice the obvious scumbaggery, which is what leads to rejection.
For some definition of scumbag, I guess.
For example, surely it's clear -- and follow me closely, if you're a Booman reader who came over here -- that a President who assassinates US citizens without due process is a scumbag.
I mean, how much scummier do you get than waking up in the morning, deciding that shooting a US citizen (you, me, even Booman) is a good idea, and then ordering the hit? But Booman defends this.
Which tells you everything you need to know about Booman, the dominant faction of the Ds for which Booman shills, the Ds themselves, the legacy party system of which they are a part, and the collapse of Constitutional government. (Remember "He's a professor of Constitutional law!" Happy, innocent days....)
NOTE To be fair, Booman may not be as stupid as he seems to be. He could be a good German.
UPDATE Sheesh, by this time, some Booman acolyte has generally wandered over here to call me an asshole. They must really be demoralized over there. And for good reason.
