Crackpot James Fallows: USA Undergoing a Coup or Something

Posted by on Jun 25, 2012 at 7:02 am

This turd can’t even defend his original headline and came back to change it.

Sorry, pal, the damage is done.

(Midnight update: This item went up three hours ago with a more blunt-instrument headline than it should ever have had: “5 Signs the United States is Undergoing a Coup.” I used the word “coup” in a particular way in the longer item this was drawn from. Using it in the headline implies things I don’t mean. Through the past decade, there has been a radical shift in the “by any means necessary” rules of political combat, as I describe. Previous conservative administrations have nominated previous conservative Justices — but not radical partisans, happy to overthrow precedent to get to the party-politics result they want. That is the case I mean to make. And I hope the upcoming health care ruling ends up being evidence on the other side.)

The same guy would be doing a happy dance if the Supremes voted the way he wanted, of course. But when the little baby doesn’t get his way, why there’s a coup going on or something.

What an idiot.

    I used ” I won’t do horrible things in your mouth” in a particular way, and my ‘shorter’ version (don’t judge) implied things I didn’t mean.
