Like hell we mustn’t. We must. Big time.
The last couple weeks’ revelations of fresh and compelling examples of the kind of duplicity and petty tyranny we conservatives have been screaming about for five years have presented us with what military folks call a “seam.” A “seam” is the border where two different units meet, and it is generally the kind of weak point you want to drive your forces into in order to split your opponent’s front and rout him.

But they have not explained why it would and we can’t understand why it would.” Read more from this story HERE.
