Lots of words not saying anything

I'd say this Wills' article is vapid in the extreme ... lots of words not saying much. Of course he has to acknowledge that something went wrong but it is notable how many words he uses to say that and then not really offer any real observation worth observing.

Wills seems to be advocating a red herring sort of Conservatism: throw a couple of bones to those who actually want the government castrated and hope they're too stupid to recognize they are just being led along again. You know: sort of like the way the Repugs played the "Born Again Christian" and anti-abortion contingent for the better part of a decade. A majority of those, though, were apparently such dim bulbs that it never seemed to occur to them that when the Repugs dominated the House, the Senate, AND the Presidency by a large margin they could have delivered pretty much anything and everything they said they believed in. Notably, however, they didn't even try.

Are we going to be stupid enough to fall for a shill such as Wills and his "more libertarian" more charismatic hypocrite next time around? Or are the Repugs and their mouthpieces the stupid ones who still haven't a clue that we are on to them?

Do you need a politician or judge to "interpret" those 28
