The Economist nicely tackled the whole right-wing heckling-slash-most-disrespectful-thing-in-modern-US-politics-since-the-last-time-a-right-winger-shouted-you-lie-or-shoved-their-finger-up-his-nose very well. Look, I’ve been very good about editing my ridiculous thoughts in a separate piece of writing which I will not dignify these places by publishing just yet. You’ll just have to deal with that.

Anyways, some blogger made a counter-argument that the unanimous and bi-partisan respect for the office argument and the Economist rightly put him down. I don’t think O’Reilly was condemning the You Lie guy or Gov. Brewer when they got uppity, if you’ll allow me to borrow that phrase from the KKK.

Without some kind of restraints to hold back the flood of tribal animosity, democratic politics gravitate towards slapfightsscrums and impeachment proceedings.

The above quote from the Economist is why I say Boom. It just doesn’t get any better than the sense of total agreement, a smug agreement where you smile, close your eyelids and nod and think to yourself “Yes, very sensible.” Then, miliseconds later think, oh wait.
