    I don’t want to sound like I’m minimizing Obama’s many bad points, but didn’t the Republicans shriek and wail during Clinton?
    The problem with reflexive anti-“Democratic guy in office” is that usually the dire consequences are exaggerated, but as soon as a Republican gets back in office, the State keeps all that eeeeeevil power and somehow it’s okay to be trusted again.
    Which is why I can’t stand most Republican pundits.

    “Hahahaha! Have a look at Detroit. They ought to plow that place under and start fresh. Unfortunately all the people who left that place are carriers of the disease that destroyed it and they’re doing their very best to infect the entire country.”

    The automotive industry? I’m afraid it’s too late to prevent that.

    No, actually I was thinking of unions. But I think it’s probably too late to prevent that cancer from metastasizing to the rest of the country, too.

    The only thing the auto industry is guilty of is using government to help them prolong their lack of profitability and inability to compete in the real world. And why shouldn’t they? It’s not like the feds aren’t in the business of selling favors. It’s practically their sole mission.

    The bad guy in that story is the government which should have let the car companies go under, but didn’t. The government thinks the laws of economics are merely a suggestion.

    “But Hitler and Lenin? Come on, now.”

    Man, Radley… you just cannot grasp a fucking principle for anything in the world, can you?

    I like you, but you’re a goddamned ethical cripple.
