Walter Russell Mead, while in the process of idly kicking around feckless radical environmentalists:
Snail darters beware: green political cluelessness is about to rock your world.
The context – although it’s plenty good without it, really – is that Mead (who is almost certainly fibbing when he says ” I don’t actually enjoy tweaking the greens*”) is commenting on the quote-unquote ‘strategy’ of the professional environmental movement. Said strategy? Finding as many different ways as possible to have the excuse to line up in a row, scream “Bonsai!,**” and charge.
And what do we know about Banzai charges?
That’s right. They don’t [expletive deleted] work.
*An absolutely forgivable fib.
**Yes, it’s actually “Banzai!” Like I’m going to pass up that opportunity for a pun.
