Department of Redundancy Department

Jay Aykroyd of Eschaton has already linked to this, but Tom's a friend of mine, so I'm linking to it too. Lots of intelligence in the comments thread, as well. One of my favorites:


But they were Founders! They were without flaw, like Jesus.

It’s funny how a common theme of the history of the period is how Washington had to channel an administration and cabinet of geniuses (including Adams, Hamilton and Jefferson) who all held very divergent views of how the country should be run. But somehow, people like the Tea Party People or Antonin Mad Dog Scalia all like to push some phoney idea of near universal Original Intent held by the Perfect Founders.

Nice founder strawman, that Jebus analogy. Looks good by the throw pillows over there in the corner of the echo chamber.

You feel better about your low-content gibes after the country's jibe to the starboard? No good rationale for the feeling, but that's why they're feelings.
