Call it Schadenfreude, but it was certainly a pleasure to wake up this morning to the gnashing of leftist teeth over last night's Tea Party triumph. The howling of the lefties is as music to my ears. In his latest outburst, Paul Krugman speaks of "extortion." Others speak of 'hostage-taking,' 'terrorism,' 'Taliban tactics,' 'arson.' One commentator likened the Tea Partiers to Hezbollah.
This absurdly extremist rhetoric lets us know that for the Left this is a war. But then how can we treat it as a civil debate? They are lying about us blatantly and brazenly. (Bernie Sanders, the Vermont socialist said on C-Span the other night that Republicans want to destroy Social Security.) So we must tell the truth about them and gird our loins for the next round. Meanwhile a bit of celebration is in order.
