Can't we all just get along?

Now, I love Roger Simon.

But I'm not sure what to make of this post: "And that’s not just the so-called establishment or the so-called Tea Party — it’s both.  Both are doing an atrocious job of taking their message to the people."

It's all well and good to say so, but I don't quite see the dynamic. I suspect the Republican establishment and Tea Party see each other as mortal enemies, probably as much or moreso than, say, Democrats or socialists. But I repeat myself. (And hasten to add that no one is more socialist than businesses, who want government above all to insulate them from failure.)

And they are all more or less right to see each other as mortal enemies.

So, thanks, Roger, but I'm not thinking you've advanced the ball. Better send $50 to Reason, buy a cheap bottle of wine, and await the apocalypse or singularity, whichever comes first.

It seems the establishment and the TPUSA are as much mortal enemies as the Peoples Front of Judea and the Judean Peoples Front.

Or the Serbs and Croats, if you like

Interesting. Are you conflating the Dems into establishment, or do they just not count?

THe LIB/Con difference is a silly enough marker but the intra party differences go beyond ridiculous- they matter only to the fratricidal lugnuts going after each other at mid-year conventions and platform committees. Have at it, boys- you make everyone else seem reasonable by comparison
