The Dependency Agenda

I’ve watched a few CPAC speeches, and they reminded me of townhall.com: It was a combination of brilliant thinkers and mouth-breathing wing-nuts.

It was encouraging to see they invited a gay rights group, and even more encouraging when a wing-nut who condemned them for it was booed off the stage. But it would be better if the wingier of the wing-nuts we’re left where they belong – waiting in the wings. It’s hard to take any movement seriously when a substantial percentage of its followers are birthers and truthers and theocrats.

I don’t usually have the patience for long videos, but this one is worth your time. George Will was funny, entertaining, and smart as he talked about the dependency agenda being installed by both the Republicans and the Democrats.
