Insanity as an Ideology

Posted on | June 25, 2012 | 10 Comments

Ace of Spades comments:

Remember what I was saying in the comments on Friday, about the psychological shock of the coming repudiation, and how it would become a Concern (capital intended) as some people simply went crazy?

He speaks of the increasingly deranged James Fallows, but it could equally apply to any number of liberals. As they were utterly graceless in victory, we cannot expect them to lose with dignity.

    I prefer ‘Ideology as an Insantity’.

    James Fallows, an example of the disease of liberalism. There must be something in that Chinese water.

    To paraphrase Stonewall Jackson, I don’t want them to lose with dignity. I just want them to lose.

    Modern lefties are utterly graceless, period.   Losing, winning, or somewhere in between, it matters not.

    Classic liberals, they are a different matter.  And an endangered species, alas.

    James Fallows has regressed all the way back to “Gore should have won Florida”.  That’s actually a couple of levels below the fetal position.

    I said a long time ago that if BO loses the election he will be the sorest loser ever, will probably refuse to make a formal concession speech.  His minions are already laying the groundwork.  Of course there are even darker conspiracy theories that he will refuse to go willingly.   Those have cropped up in recent years every time the POTUS changes parties but they sure seem to fit more than ever now.

    Whom the gods destroy, they first make mad.
    This may be an entropic event taking place (Stargate reference possibly alluded to).

    […] RS McCain agrees, from an undisclosed location due to Bret Kimberlin’s minions. […]
