The Evils of the Middle

Interesting, how on war, the national security state and government over-reach, the far-left and far-right have common cause in stopping the madness.

It's the centrist fucks, that are the main evil in these matters.

While, the far-right is pretty screwed up , in my opinion, at least they have some sense of humanity left.

I guess one way to look at it is that the extremes of the two parties have remained true to their convictions, and not sold out on creating the Americans fascist state. What's interesting is that the common conviction for both the extreme left and right is anti-war, and anti-fascist government. While this makes sense in some ways, it is also a bit counter-intuitive. Not clear, however, as Greenwald points out, is how many of these "principled" conservatives are actually just upset because it's Obama in power. The real test of conviction is someone who goes against their party's president-- thus, in this case, the Dems.

In this regard, it is worth noting that my Rethuglican Representative, who is a standard horrible conservative, at least had the decency to vote against the renewal of the Patriot Act.
