I’ve been waiting to see what direction Bobo would go with Rick Perry. He seems to be leaning towards “I don’t like him but I can see why Applebee-goers do, failure of the establishment blah blah blah”. I believe this will eventually morph into “Perry has some good ideas, libruls aren’t fair to him blah blah blah” though maybe not “Perry is the Burkean, Churchillian genius who will save Western Civilization” (Bobo went there with W).
The events of 2009 and 2010 also concentrated the Republican mind. It used to be that there were many themes in the Republican hymnal. Now there is only one: Government is too big, and it needs to be brought under control. It used to be there were many threats on the horizon. Now there is only one: the interlocking oligarchy of politicians, academics, journalists, consultants and financiers who live along the Acela corridor want to rip America from its traditional moorings.
I’m not sure that’s true, I think Strapping Young Bucks and Hippies Who Spit On Soliders are still grave threats.
But you know who else didn’t like the interlocking oligarchy of politicians, academics, journalists, consultants and financiers?
