Through The Looking Glass

The governor of Texas, Rick Perry, just called executive enforcement of the law – which is part of any president’s constitutional duty – a felony:

If this health care law is forced upon this country, the young men and women in this audience are the ones who are really going to pay the price. And that, I will suggest to you, reaches to the point of being a felony toward them and their future. That is a criminal act, from my perspective, to put that type of burden on them, to mortgage their future like that. America cannot stand that. America cannot accept that.

At its core, the current GOP is a truly revolutionary movement, dedicated to the eradication of the very things it preposterously claims to care about. Look at this sentence and its Orwellian surrealism. It’s a crime to enforce a duly-enacted, Supreme Court-approved law? Why are we even treating these people as if they are anything but know-nothing constitutional vandals?
