The Liberal Idea Machine

The Agenda Project’s goal is to build a powerful, intelligent, well-connected political movement capable of identifying and advancing rational, effective ideas in the public debate and in so doing ensure our country’s enduring success.

Mission Statement of the liberal Agenda Project

The latest "intelligent, rational and effective idea" from the Agenda Project to advance public debate?

(H/T Another Black Conservative). Isn't that pithy. They must be ivy league grads.

This is part for the course for our modern left. Demonizing and dismissing out of hand the arguments of their opponents is their only strategy. The Tea Party challenges Obama's profligate spending and vast new statist programs - the left plays the race card. State that Obamacare's mandate is a tax, utterly ridiculous says Obama. Raise ethics charges against Maxine Waters, it's racism. Challenge the building of the Ground Zero mosque - religious bigotry, says Mayor Bloomberg. Paul Ryan's ideas to bring us back to fiscal sanity - flim flam says Paul Krugman. Indeed, as to the last example, WSJ recently ran an article on how Krugman is merely one of many on the far left who would like to see Paul Ryan disappear without having to address the substance of his arguments.

We have seen this same meme played out hundreds of thousands of times over the past decades. Indeed, the same Democrats who created the massive housing bubble and who destroyed our credit system in the process did so on the grounds that any challenge thereto was racist.

And now with November fast approaching, it's down to the left's final argument, f*** tea. These people are as intellectualy dishonest as they are intellectualy bankrupt.

That T-shirt shows the biggest problem liberals have at this; being totally devoid of a sense of humor, they are pitifully handicapped.
