Watching liberals get in touch with their Inner Red King when democracy and the views of hoi polloi get in the way of their sheer awesome correctness about everything is a sight to behold. Obama’s open and obvious distaste with the tedium of having to let other people have a say in the process of governance has never been even thinly veiled. Now it is made clear that most of his base feel the same way. I wonder how long it will take before de facto becomes de jure.
It’s moments like this I recall Chesterton’s remark that a tyranny is almost always a tired democracy.
