Sonny Bunch has a superb summary of recent political shifts on the Left, as told by Liberal sources complaining about the Right. Not only is it ingenious, but it is smack on the money.
Basically, the Left has been complaining for some time about a growing extremism on the Right, that the GOP is increasingly out of touch, and that moderate Republicans could never get elected by their own parties these days. In fact, as his walkthrough shows, this is actually true of the Left, and yet to be demonstrated on the Right.
Fun, short, and well-composed. What isnt to like?
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
