Surprised none of the other front pagers jumped on this earlier. From my favorite reporter, Mr. Charles P. Pierce:
The best thing that ever happened to the careers of John Roberts and Samuel Alito, and the worst thing that ever happened to the Voting Rights Act, campaign-finance regulation, minority students in Michigan, the people of Iraq, the people of New Orleans, and the people of the United States generally, is back with another demonstration of his undeniable genius, and another invitation to the nation to join him on another unicorn hunt…
You can probably guess the details: progressives should ally with libertarians, under the leadership of some forward thinker like Rand Paul, to impeach President Obama and install a media-worthy millionaire like President Oprah Winfrey to lead us into The Limitless Future. You wish I was joking. Say this for Harold Stassen, at least he had the stones to run in his own futile campaigns rather than looking for serial saviors to implement his airy phantasies.
Apart from rolling our eyes, what’s on the agenda tonight?
