“Un-American” http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/02/Rudy-Giuliani-Obama-Does-Not-Love-America/385647/ And the Zingy position is, we’d like to be able to have that dispassionate, brainy public conversation about how it is that desiring to transform America’s commercial vitality into something opposite of what it’s been, its world leadership position into something opposite of what’s it’s been, its general standard of living into something diminished because its exploitive at its essence and causes climate change… is something other than a ‘love’ for America as we have been right to understand the concept in the past. IE, the inner dialogue of the Democrat party is kind of kook lefty Marxist academic, and doesn’t Venn overlap all that well with traditional American values / ideals of baseball, apple pie, Chevy and whatnot. But we also know that the political environment doesn’t tolerate a discussion of those contrasts without a lot of caterwauling in which the discussers are accused of red-baiting. So if you’re going to bring it up, you better be prepared to host that polly sci seminar it requires to make it stick. And Giuliani is not that guy. So yes, he’s wrong to say it…
Giuliani’s polly sci seminar. http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/giuliani-obama-communist. True. But you’re no allowed to say that, Rudy. It’s red-baiting.
I was clued into this Holden Caulfield thing years ago. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/414112/rudy-right-kevin-d-williamson It’s why I always use the word ‘misanthropy’ in describing this superficial high info / low wisdom lefty obnoxiousness. ‘Misanthrope’ is Caulfield-esque that way
Doesn’t Bill Maher question whether the President is a Christian? http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/scott-walker-don-t-know-obama-christian And that’s the inner dialogue conversation of the Democrat party right, that the President is posturing like on gay marriage… See, TPM is dog whistling its readership here. Walker is blowing the question off, but TPM phrases it as if Walker is being provocative.
What is the deal with Walker, is he going to go wire to wire on this thing? It has that feel.
