Listening to Karl Rove

TUESDAY ON THE Rush Limbaugh show, I was struck by how wrong even the so-called heroes of the movement can be. On bipartisanship, he kept stressing the need to find common ground with the enemy the Democrats. And I kept being reminded of our masthead aphorism from Jesse Helms. If you’re right, then compromising with evil is wrong. Instead of looking for things that all of the politicians can agree on to do, the government should be asking on any subject, “Is this a subject on which we are authorized to govern?” Unless a positive action is taken via repeal of unconstitutional measures, “doing something that is good for the country” is sophistry. Congress’s job is not to “do the work of the American people” but to stay the fuck out of the way.
