Crazy Talk

Ross Douthat has a Op Ed up in which he "argues" that Republican voters aren't either crazy but rather just being good citizens as they desperately seek someone who isn't Mitt Romney. This might be true were it not for the fact that the Republican candidates have been spewing lies about Obama, crazy talk about Iran's invasion and contraception. On the whole, the primary has been a vile and horrid affair in which the candidates are willing to pander to the 27 percent. The voters are crazy and the candidates either crazy or uninterested in governance and truth.


  1. Hey. Totally off topic but did you read David brooks today? He seems quite panicked that birth rates are declining, I really think the problem for neo-libs is that they have no concept of quality of life.

  2. I was going to say that Brooks today engages in another kind of crazy talk. Rather than thinking through the possibilities of fewer people engaging in a fairer sharing of the wealth and stuff produced by an increasingly automated industrial system, he bemoans change and demands that we act to increase consumption.
