In a comment to the previous post Brett says,
I’ll be very surprised if the US of A survives.
I don’t want to give the wrong impression. I’m pretty sure it’s not going to survive, either. Not even sure its like will even come again. But the Tea Partys show that tens of millions of Americans still understand liberty and still teach it to their children.

Bwaa ha ha ha! How pitiful is that? And this Dana Milbank is apparently a very influential “thinker” of the Left! Well, she’s certainly mastered passive-aggressive cowardly bullying. I know this sounds sexist, but it’s a good thing Dana is a woman.
Because such cravenness would be unseemly beyond description, in a
