Jane Galt offers up this new law of politics:
Jane’s Law: The devotees of the party in power are smug and arrogant. The devotees of the party out of power are insane.
She is on to something.
*** Update ***
Go read the comments at Jane’s site on this issue- hysterical. If violating Godwin’s law means invoking Nazi’s and Hitler into a conversation, and gross overgeneralizations coupled with mischaracterizations is known as pulling a Higgins Manoeurve, what do you propose we call it when a lefty turns any political discussion into an argument about Election 2000? I would suggest something involving Daley, who was a prime sewer trout furing the whole unpleasantness.
