Dumb conservatives at Fox

And not just Fox.  I listened to Stephen Moore on NPR yesterday assert that the President had all sorts of flexibility during the sequester.  Several other people noted that the entire purpose of the sequester had been to impose an asinine and unreasonable budget cuts that would be so politically unpalatable that even Republicans would never go for it.  Of course, this underestimated Republican craziness and stupidity.  As we are seeing every day, they have no idea what government does and seem to, as their Tea Party base does, not realize that government is involved in many of the programs and daily activities that they support.  Yes, "keep your government out of my Medicare," indeed.

Jon Stewart, as usual, has a keen eye on their stupidity--this time their unbelievable flexibility with the Constitution.  When talking about gun rights, the Constitution is clear and unambiguous.  When talking about terror suspect rights, or even Muslim rights, the constitution becomes a Etch-a-Sketch.

I will say that I was surprised to see a fair number conservative bloggers blasting Graham for suggesting the enemy combatant thing.

I have said this before, I think, but there are actual conservatives out there--they just aren't represented in the Republican party.
