The opening and closing paragraphs of this piece about the Hobby Lobby ruling are just beautiful:
That's a pretty stunning display of sheer ignorance, or more likely
deliberate mendacity. The liberal response to Hobby Lobby is all about
emotional exhibitionism, going over the top, conjuring a fantasy villain
so everyone can join hands and sing "We Shall Overcome." It's a
hysterical release of energy, bottled up by frustration at Obama's
disastrous second term and the looming midterm-election catastrophe.
The Left really needed a win here, but more importantly, they needed emotional validation.
They can still get that by squalling like babies with soiled diapers,
and taking note of how many fellow travelers are squalling right along
Ben Franklin said his colleagues gave us a republic, if we could keep
it. A nation of adult babies and shrieking neurotics doesn't have much
chance of hanging on to a republic... as you can see from the big push
to abandon it, in favor of a benevolent-dictator Sugar Daddy model of
the presidency. Followers are encouraged to hold their binkies tightly
as Daddy tells them another scary bedtime story about the evil
corporations and nasty judgmental Bible-thumpers he protects them from.
