Apparently Charles Murray, the Bell Curve guy, has the hot new strategy for conservative power in the twenty first century: lots and lots and lots of frivolous lawsuits.
In a nutshell, if Chuck and David can’t buy the President then they can drop a few hundred million for a defense fund to keep the Executive branch tied up in court forever. In other words Murray and his fans, Jeb for example, want an insurgency by the few against the many, in fact pretty much an explicit insurgent campaign against the general idea of democracy. Titling his book ‘By the People‘ comes across as a cute play on words for a guy who is pretty explicit in his opinion that the privileged Randian few should tell the dim masses what to do and how to live. The ‘people’ Charles Murray has in mind would number from about twelve to a few hundred at most. Their world; the rest of us would live in it.
Assuming that our current rightwing SCOTUS majority hangs on long enough to legalize this currently illegal strategy*, at least we will get to watch the FOX demographic validate Cleek with the most epic reversal in, well, not quite ever.
(*) Murray mentions early on that he is not an expert in Constitutional law, then exhaustively proves the point. To summarize Constitutional law, you can’t file suits and pointlessly prolong a legal action just to harass the other party.
