"Anger is a Right", According to Greg Gutfield

The Instapundit today linked to a piece by Greg Gutfield, "Anger is a Right", on how the usual suspects in the MSM are characterizing the reaction by the citizenry to the passage of Obamacare (which incidentally has already wiped out about $2 billion in shareholder equity at a mere handful of companies in less than a week since it was signed into law. My thoughts on corporations are here. But I digress.). The post is very amusing, and right on target. I just had a slightly different take-away than the Instapundit did. Here's the part that caught my eye:

"We are angry not because we lost, but that we lost to losers. I'm not talking about Obama, or the Dems. They're winners, sadly. I'm talking about progressivism. The reason why I'm angry, my friends are angry, and my imaginary unicorn Captain Sparkles is angry - is because the greatest, most winningest country in the history of the world, just embraced the loser's doctrine.

For two hundred plus years we've kicked ass, and we're now choosing the belief system of the idiots whose asses we've kicked." [my emphasis]

Read the whole thing (as the great man would say).

Very interesting analysis.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
