For John, BLUF: Yes, I think the Left has gone round the bend. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Power Line, by .Mr John Hinderaker, 7 July 2018.
Here is the beginning:
Remember the good old days when the Left pretended to worry about “eliminationist rhetoric”? Now, they don’t even pretend to worry about a Bernie Sanders volunteer trying to murder Republican Congressmen.The Godfather? Wasn't there a certain amount of death in that series?
Yesterday’s New York Times editorial on the judiciary illustrates how far around the bend the Democratic Party has gone:With Republicans controlling the Senate and the judicial filibuster dead, the Democrats’ odds of denying President Trump a second Supreme Court appointment are slim. Barring some unforeseen development, the president will lock in a 5-to-4 conservative majority, shifting the court solidly to the right for a generation.
This is all the more reason for Democrats and progressives to take a page from “The Godfather” and go to the mattresses on this issue.
