Be Careful What You Wish For

Just a few thoughts on the election last night:

I have to smile at the sentiment, and truth, of this post at the Club For Growth.

Bipartisanship? Are you serious? You think that after so many members of the Left reflexively marginalized the conservative talk radio set with unsubstantiated vitriole that those people are going to come up smiling? Then you talk of passing the Fairness Doctrine to muzzle their medium? Are you serious? You don't put out fires with gasoline.

It is a learning experience to see how a powerful narrative can allow so many people to glaze over alarmingly dangerous ideas. This explains a lot about history.

I concur with this post from Arnold Kling at EconLog.
