So at the end of yet another ho-hum overwrought denunciation of his ideological foes as nutty theocratic extremists, Andrew Sullivan looks into his crystal ball and sees a civil war coming in the aftermath of an Obama loss.
Well, what else can reasonable, deep thinking people do when their favored politician fails at the ballot box?! These Republicans are virtually thrusting the weapons into their hands by fielding a candidate against The One at all!
It sort of reminds me of this exchange between Elizabeth Edwards and a supporter at a Town Hall meeting just before election 2004:
Supporter: I’m just worried there’s going to be riots afterwards.
Edwards: Uh…well…not if we win.
Hilarious. Andrew Sullivan “fears” what his own allies might do if they lose the 2012 election, but still manages to define “extremist” as essentially a disagreement with Andrew Sullivan, circa 2011. (If you agree with Andrew Sullivan circa 2002 you are, of course, an unilateral imperialist whose adore for torture and Islamofascism knows no bounds…)
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
