Ace of AoSHQ, on Alan Derschowitz’s public breaking with Democrats if they continue to work with Media Matters for America (if?):
Let me get Alan Derschowitz prepared for something:
It’s called a paradigm shift. It’s going to seem a little weird and scary at first, but it will also be thrilling and ultimately liberating.
A lot of things that have bothered you for sixty years — which haven’t seemed to make sense to you, because your brain was screening the truth from you — are suddenly going to make a lot of sense indeed. And you’re going to be kicking yourself for not seeing it sooner, like an optical illusion that suddenly changes from a lady’s face to a candle.
…Yeah. It’s all kinds of messed up when it’s going on, but you get over it. And then, when you do… there’s that magical, wonderful moment when you realize for the first time that you don’t have to pretend to believe, or even publicly take seriously, that incredibly stupid piece of nonsense that has been your personal cross to bear all this time. It’s like having your ear pop back to normal after an ear infection has run its course; you’ll wonder why you never noticed before how muted all the sounds were…
PS: Don’t worry about being heretical, either. Getting three Republicans to agree on anything is kind of a fool’s errand anyway.
