Way Way Behind Their Time

The Great Grey Sycophant Of Empire explains it all:
What's happening here ain't exactly clear. But I have a notion: The Republicans are finally having their '60s. Half a century after the American left experienced its days of rage, its repudiation of the political establishment, conservatives are having their own political catharsis. Ted Cruz is their spotlight-seeking Abbie Hoffman. (The Texas senator's faux filibuster last week reminded me of Hoffman's vow to "levitate" the Pentagon using psychic energy.) The Tea Party is their manifesto-brandishing Students for a Democratic Society. Threatening to blow up America’s credit rating is their version of civil disobedience. And Obamacare is their Vietnam.
