Look, let’s be honest:

…No Republican Congressman is ever, ever going to worry about being arrested because he or she made it possible for ordinary, decent, hard-working American citizens to see the People’s monuments. In fact, they’d welcome it. And put that on their campaign literature.
Barack Obama and the Democrats have dealt the Left a very bad hand, here: it’s becoming expected that of course military veterans will cheerfully and politely move the barrycades out of the way so that they can see the sights. And every time a group does it gets just a little harder to take Washington Monument Syndrome seriously; heck, we’re almost at the point where the populace will decide that they’ll be taking back the Lincoln Memorial now, Mr. President…
PS: Why, yes, I am laughing at the people upset that the Right even does civil disobedience better than the Left does. It’s not my fault that they suck, and I don’t.
