But the high holiness of dissent for its own sake is now the core belief of the Democratic Party: It’s not what you’re for, it’s what you’re against. Their current denunciations of Big Oil have a crudely effective opportunism but say to them “OK, what’s your energy policy?” and see what answers you get: More domestic oil? Ooh, no, we can’t disturb the pristine ANWR breeding ground of the world’s largest mosquito herd. More nuclear power, like the French? Ooh, no, might be another Three Mile Island. Er, OK, you’re the mass transit guys; how about we go back to wood-fired steam trains? Ooh, no, we’re opposed to logging, in case it causes global warming, or cooling, or both.
The whole article is good. The French looking Massachusetts Democrat, who by the way, served in Vietnam, used the much debunked fake Thomas Jefferson quote, “dissent is the highest form of patriotism.” in a speech a few days ago.
Ok, looks like my compile is finished now–back to work.
