Charles Pierce on the ‘Reign of Morons’

Here is  Charles Pierce (Esquire) with a characteristically dead-on overview of how we got here.  What is missing in all the current hand-wringing/fainting couch analysis by the MSM and moderate conservatives is the historical context for our current situation. This is CUD writ large and it was entirely predictable.

I have yet to see any MSM source point out that the Heritage Foundation, chief antagonist and foe of the ACA, are the people who ACTUALLY WROTE THE ACA.  This plan, that essentially forces Americans to support private insurance companies, was the brainchild of free-marketers and it was specifically adopted by the administration (against the wishes of pretty much every progressive in the country) to avoid a divisive showdown with conservatives. Let that sink in for a moment. Democrats adopted an healthcare reform plan that many found odious in order to prevent a tantrum and the group that actually wrote said odious plan incited a tantrum over it.

There is no way to win with these people. No concessions will ever be enough and attempts to reason with them are pointless. They are missing the components for reason and are a pathologically entitled minority who have no compunction about forcing their will on everyone, in violation of the most basic values of a democratic society.
