Jon Henke wants to boycott WorldNetDaily. I think he’s on to something, though I’m not sure a boycott is the answer. How about Republicans start pressing their leadership to quit acting crazy and to quit giving the nod to crazy people like Corsi, Bachmann and Beck? Or is that totally unrealistic?
Kudos to the Henke and Ruffini and the others at The Next Right for talking sense in the midst of all the noise that is coming to define Republican politics these days.
I’m of the mind that sensibility is more sustainable than faux outrage, but also that we are going to have to watch the self-destructive wing of the conservative movement fully implode before we see anything from the sensible crowd really come to fruition. Not only are heads planted firmly in the sand, but the trenches have been dug, the positions firmly staked out. They’re running without any heed to policy or the questions of governance, though, so at the end of the day – when all is lost – where else will they turn but to the people who spent the time thinking rather than shouting? Those who devised policy rather than cultivated their anger? This is a waiting game, but you can’t sit idle while you wait. Smart, thinking conservatives are the keepers of Plan B.
The question, as always, is how long will this farce last?
