NEO-NEOCON ON THE OLD SWITCHEROO: “I know that this is the traditional honeymoon period for a president-elect. But whatever honeymoon aspects this has—and it most definitely has some—are further enhanced by the fact that this was a honeymoon that was unexpected and unplanned by most people. It’s as though we expected to spend some time in the hospital having a colonoscopy, and after doing all the nasty prep and getting to the point of lying in the hospital room with the IV about to be inserted, instead a brass band comes into the room and the drum majorette announces that we need to get up, because instead we’ve won a free trip to a luxury resort in Hawaii. Now, that resort might be a bit tawdry. It may not be the exactly perfect hotel we would have chosen it we’d had our druthers. But hey, it’s a whole lot better than that colonoscopy.”

Indeed it is. Yesterday, a few hours before Neo sent me a link to her new post, I was telling my wife that I left California in March firmly convinced that Hillary had the election in the bag, but Texas would be a bit behind the lines during the top-down culture war that was sure to come, along with Hillary packing the Supreme Court with far left socialists for a generation. Knowing those particular boulders have been dodged make the move now feel that much more fun. Going forward, lefties can and will continue to do considerable damage to the country (see also: the crazy propaganda the left disseminated during the Nixon administration), but at least the White House won’t be leading the charge for at least the next four years.
