Digby on the teaparty

Hullabaloo: "It's not even a matter of not liking the constitutional principle of 'majority rule, but protect the minority' because they think it's undemocratic. When they are in the majority, they resent the protection of the minority, to be sure. But when they are in the minority they equally resent majority rule. The 'principle' is simply that they believe they are superior and more deserving and that people they don't like, whether they are in the majority or the minority, do not deserve to have any say in how the world is organized. They just do not believe their opposition is legitimate in any way. It's not really any more complicated than that."

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
