think back the last few months;


  • Contraception questions duriung debates
  • Sandra Fluke
  • Rush's Comments about Fluke and lefty hysteria
  • FAUX War On Women ......



Now Consider this,


ďIt is a soft form of the liberal fascism about which Iíve been warning. The GOP must be painted as extremist by the press, their point of view must be painted as fringe, and they must be shut up because they are too damn successful.Ē

and this ..........



Norman Ornstein to the Press Corps: Stop Covering the GOP Fairly to Stop Their Success

Nothing says marginal extremism like holding the US House, most statehouses, most governorships, and a plurality of national party ID.


Norman Ornstein is the in house pet liberal at the American Enterprise Institute who they let out of his cage once in a while to lament the free market, conservatives, and the like. Iím not sure why groups like the Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute ever allow their supposed scholars to team up with the Brookings Institute, but whenever they do it results in intellectual underwear stains for both organizations.

In todayís quasi-bipartisan inane ramblings, Norman Ornstein of the American Enterprise Institute and Thomas Mann of the Brookings Institute want the Washington Press Corps to know the GOP is extremist, destroying the country, and they should all stop paying attention to the GOP or treating them with balance.

Nothing says marginal extremism like holding the US House, most statehouses, most governorships, and a plurality of national party ID.

Now, we know their target audience is the press corps because they write

Our advice to the press: Donít seek professional safety through the even-handed, unfiltered presentation of opposing views. Which politician is telling the truth? Who is taking hostages, at what risks and to what ends?

This is a growing trend among left-wingers. They have not won the arguments. In fact, Ornstein and Mann take 1,998 words to make sure we know the left has been wholly unsuccessful in its agenda. So what Ornstein and Mann resort to in response is

The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.
