Editorial weirdness from the Boston Glob
In the midst of a generally OK--for the press--editorial on bloggers, we get this little gem from the Glob editorial board:
One lesson of American politics is that opponents have to find common ground. Beating the other side into submission doesn't work; neither does waiting for the opposition to see the light.
The Republicans beat us into submission for thirty years and now they're calling us traitors and their creatures in the blogosphere are threatening to kill us (and the Supreme Court, and Times reporters and editors, among others).
And they control all three branches of government and are busy destroying the separation of powers and Constitutional government.
So I would say beating the opposition into submission has a very fine track record indeed.
Why shouldn't we emulate it?
