Abby Zimet

In case you're thinking that by now surely the right has learned something from its shutdown debacle - alas, not. Which is evidently why Heritage Foundation head Jim DeMint wrote a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece explaining why opposing the America-destroying ObamaCare is "a reasonable and necessary fight" that he and his well-funded cronies will keep fighting, and why Hannity is echoing him with lies and half-truths rapidly destroyed by fact-checking, and why rabid followers of their thinking have nonetheless blasted John Boehner's Facebook page with insults like "caving big government Marxist," "dickheaded traitor," "f#@kheaded Constitution-shredding turncoat," and "Benghazi-denying rino," our favorite. Hard times in Delusion City. We contain multitudes, but we are at least two countries.
