Mark Tapscott, delusional partisan idiot

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Seriously? Seriously. There really is such idiocy out there:

If nothing else, the Obama eruption in American politics is steadily revealing the stark reality behind the progressive movement -- the totalitarian temptation is always there and, for more than a few, possessing the official power to compel sooner or later becomes irresistible.

Just consider the title of Tapscott's piece: "Beware the Stalin in progressive hearts?"

Progressives are Stalinists? Why, because they think that government should be more than just a complete non-existence, surfacing only to torture detainees, spy on American citizens, and hand out corporate welfare? What, exactly, is the evidence, that "the progressive movement" is totalitarian? Or does Tapscott believe that Obama is secretly setting up gulags?

Oh, sure, Tapscott excuses some "folks" on the left who haven't been overcome by Stalinism, but his message is clear, and it's a message that many on the right, including more popular fearmongers like Beck and Dear Leader Rush, are pushing.

He's our Idiot of the Day, and I'm sure you can see why. If you can't, just head on back to the GOP idiocracy whence you crawled.
