Kevin has a new piece

And it dovetails nicely with that CNN hack and his 'mediocre negroes' crap.

The Death of Civility.  One bit, a quote he found:
Progressivism, liberalism, or whatever you want to call it has become an ideology of power. So long as liberals hold it, principles don't matter. It also highlights the real fascist legacy of World War I and the New Deal: the notion that government action in the name of "good things" under the direction of "our people" is always and everywhere justified. Dissent by the right people is the highest form of patriotism. Dissent by the wrong people is troubling evidence of incipient fascism.

And a fine demonstration of why so many people now consider most of the major media to be, borrowing from Insty, nothing but Democrat hacks with bylines:
So the American public was told everything the muckraking media could dig up (or invent) about Palin during the race, yet just a few days prior to the election, former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw commented during an interview with PBS talking-head Charlie Rose that "we don't know much about Obama." He was speaking about Obama's foreign policy positions, but Charlie Rose later said: "I don't know what Barack Obama's worldview is." Brokaw responded, "No, no. I don't either."

But we knew everything there was to know about Sarah Palin, though much of it was wrong - "fake news."  But no one could be bothered to talk to anyone about Obama's relationships with Bill Ayers or Rev. Wright, much less find out about his college admissions, transcripts or anything he'd ever written for the Harvard Law Review.  Mitt Romney and the 2012 election?  He put his dog on the roof of his car, and he didn't pay his taxes.  Oh, and he had "binders of women," the sexist.

And he reminds us of that quote- that downright terrifying quote- from Al Gore:
From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption.
