It's not the founding fathers these dudes love, it's the romantic idea of the founding fathers, which absolves them of responsibility for the present. What did the founding fathers think about the income tax, health care, abortion, oil, war in the middle east, etc? Pretty much nothing.

well hasn't that always been the thing with these dorks? strict constitutionalists that also like to bloviate about what the founders would have thought about modern developments. it's like one or the other, guys

hitchens evisceration of mamets book is pretty good but even funnier than hitch's review are the actual quotes from the book, such as

"The BP gulf oil leak . . . was bad. The leak of thousands of classified military documents by Julian Assange on WikiLeaks was good. Why?"

shockingly, wingnutdaily "op-ed" begins: "I know this sounds crazy."

Yet, all it would take is for one state to recognize that – real or fraudulent – the document he released affirms he does not meet the requirements of a "natural born citizen." In fact, he is a walking, talking, breathing example of what a "natural born citizen" is not – complete with the dual loyalties the founders feared.

If I were as prone to sloganizing as Mamet, I’d keep clear of bumper-sticker comparisons altogether.

I wonder what a smart but mislead writer like Mamet thinks about being taken down by an equally smart writer who a) can't be easily dismissed as an idiot and b) can't be dismissed a mere ideological analog? I bet a Mamet response would be predictably bellicose, but surely he'd recognize, at least privately, that he just got his ass kicked in public.

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 18 June 2011 20:24 (4 years ago) Permalink

otm and the moment I finished the Hitchens review I googled around to see if Mamet had responded. Hitchens was the perfect person to get to review that book.

The case centers around Giordano's owner John Apostolou, who was forced to give up his control of the pizza chain, which he's owned since 1988, after his businesses fell into $45.5 million worth of debt. The chain has been under bankruptcy protection since February, but Apostolou only lost control after he submitted some court filings in the style of the sovereign citizen movement. One filing declared that Apostolous and his wife are "American Freemen, free inhabitants of the Illinois state, and we find it impossible to obtain State declared Legal Tender at Law." They also said they don't believe in U.S. currency or the legal system, typical beliefs of sovereign citizens, who generally consider almost all branches of the U.S. government to be illegitimate.

The rules set up by Mall of America officials for Sarah and Bristol Palin's book signing yesterday seemed to have been written in anticipation of an army of fans.

"'Camping out' is not allowed," the rules read. "Beginning at 5 a.m., guests will be allowed to line up."

But there was no teeming crowd of rabid Palinites at 5 a.m. And less than a half hour into the appearance of Bristol, Sarah, and Todd Palin, the crowd had dwindled to a trickle of latecomers.

From one of the first comments:

I've considered myself a Libertarian for many years, but have to say that I found their views a bit extreme. I didn't know that there were some branches of Libertarianism that were against government regulating food or medicine safety.

iow, I've been calling myself a libertarian because it sounds nice, but I have never taken the slightest effort to discover what "libertarian" might mean.

Aimless, Friday, 1 July 2011 18:51 (4 years ago) Permalink

when I was in high school, there was maybe a 15-minute window where I thought the concept of libertarianism was worth investigating; those 15 minutes ended when I realized the person I was discussing this with was a disenfranchised just-slightly-short-of-being-racist douche who considered the Civil Rights Act to be an overreach of government

DJP, Friday, 1 July 2011 18:55 (4 years ago) Permalink

I think that anyone who is an actual Libertarian has to think that! The rest are just enthralled with the romanticism of some ideas, imo

mh, Friday, 1 July 2011 19:02 (4 years ago) Permalink

whenever i take that "political compass" test (something i've been doing for what seems like decades now), i wind up deep in left/libertarian territory, between the little "dalai lama" and "nelson mandela" dots.

Economic Left/Right: -4.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.69

this inclined me, once upon a time, to think that i might actually be a libertarian. at least until i found out what actual, real-world "libertarians" were all about. now i have no home. :(

"In this the so-called progressives are joined, as they traditionally have been, by brutish white supremacists and knuckle-dragging anti-Semites, who believe that they discern within the Nordic peoples the last remnant of white European purity and who frequently adopt Nordic icons and myths, incorporating them into an oddball cult of whiteness. American progressivism is a cult of whiteness, too: It imagines re-creating Danish society in Los Angeles, which is not full of Danish people, ascribing to Scandinavian social policies certain mystical tendencies that render them universal in their applicability."

from blaming the left for white pride nationalism to tacitly endorsing it one sentence later.

What’s clear, then, is that outside of a few loyal allies in the House, LePage’s relationship with the legislature has reached a new low. And yet: How do you screw up a veto?

It’s not as if this was the first time the governor was breaking the pen out of its box. In fact, LePage has issued more vetoes than any governor in the 195-year history of Maine, and the legislature has, in turn, overridden a record number of those vetoes. For most of June, the governor had been carrying out his threat to reject any bill sponsored by a Democrat (and that expanded to some Republicans as well), so as the legislature’s session drew to a close, lawmakers had grown accustomed to accepting the hand delivery of veto messages by the bucketload from a member of the governor’s staff, often near the end of the 10-day window he has to issue them.

So when, earlier this month, the deadline passed for LePage to veto the first batch of 71 bills that the legislature had approved in the final days of the session ending June 30, lawmakers were confused. “We thought, ‘Wow, what a crazy mistake,’” Jeff McCabe, the Democratic House majority leader, told me in an interview. LePage had spent the July 4th weekend campaigning with Chris Christie, so Democrats thought he might simply have lost track of time. But then the veto deadline passed for the rest of the bills, and it became clear, McCabe said, that LePage “was really doubling down and he was pretending that his interpretation of the [ state ] constitution was way different than our interpretation.”
