Imagine if just after the 2008 election, a conservative pundit had said this of President-elect Obama: “how do you dog-train Obama? I mean it tough. Dog train. If he poops in the hall, you make his nose go in it.” Western civilization as we know it might have ended right there.

On yesterday evening’s Hardball, an overwrought Andrew Sullivan stopped just short of chewing the scenery, while repeatedly referring to Donald Trump and Ann Coulter as fascists.

This Insurrectionist regularly monitors Chris Matthews’ Hardball show.
