Quote Of The Week
...Just as information, Representative, if you threaten one American, then you threaten us all. And isn't that really the message that Boehner had the other day?
The more I think about this, the more clear it is that Boehner has stepped on the proverbial crank here by publicly confirming the us vs. them construct of the Ruling Class vs. the Country class as articulated by Angelo Codevilla. It's not so much that an assault on one of them is an assault on all of them. It's that an assault by anyone against them is viewed by all of them as cause to push back against all of us. In short, they view America as being a nation of 300 million Jarret Lee Loughners.
