This was not the silly bit --
Yelling at police doing their job maintaining security at the White House, calling them “brownshirts,” “stasi” and saying that one unit ““looks like something out of Kenya”: can we dispense with any illusions that these are patriotic political actors, respecting those who serve our country in the military or police force? They are delusional, racist fanatics.
This was just Mr. Sullivan continuing his long journey to become the "Real Conservative" Windows 95 to Liberals' Apple Macintosh: 10 years too late, bolted to an inherently awful operating system and in complete denial that it is a fatally buggy, inferior rip-off of the original, superior product:-- Andrew Sullivan, October 14, 2013
When I listen to these newly-minted Conservative ex-pats as they hold the hymnals of their recently-renounced cults up to the light and remark in Very Loud Amazement and Horror at how the whole shitty wingnut Ponzi scheme is held together by nothing but the paranoia, rage, racism and imbecility of the Base, coupled with the absolutely sociopathic willingness to Lie All The Time About Everything by Movement leaders......I must admit that I am reminded precisely of the unpleasantly loud braying noises that brand new Windows 95 users used to make as they discovered the joys of using a thingie called a Mouse to "click" on Pictures of stuff to make other stuff happen.And how incredibly fucking annoying that unpleasantly loud braying sounded to their Dirty Hippie Apple-using friends and neighbors who,
A) Had already been using a vastly superior and vastly more elegantly integrated version of the same technology for years and years...
B) Had already wasted endless, fruitless hours of their lives at show-and-tell-and-shout trying to convince their dull-witted DOS-addicted fellow citizens of the supremacy of the graphical user interface...
No the "silly" bit was this part:
"You realize they are not conservative in any way at all."
