After the Good Times

The last Good Year, says Robert Stacy McCain, was 2005:

Now that I think about it, 2005 was The Last Good Year, before the Iraq War went completely sideways, before Democrats took over Congress in 2006, before the Bush administration disintegrated into incoherence. Man, what fun it was in 2005, to laugh at the pathetic helplessness of libtards and moonbats, wallowing in their misery after “RatherGate” and the defeat of John Kerry, when every boy wanted a G.I. Joe for Christmas. But don’t look back, you can never look back …

Tell me about it. This here little Web site was drawing over 20,000 visitors a month in 2005.

Daily Wire editor and occasional Twitter gadfly Ben Shapiro was twenty-one in 2005. And:

Shapiro is an alumnus of Harvard Law where apparently they teach Advanced Quadrilateral Logic or some other kind of postmodernist thought process that makes it possible to believe that your opposition to the election of a Republican doesn’t mean you’re advocating the election of a Democrat. As someone who voted Libertarian in 2008 (because f–k John McCain and the open-borders globalist horse he rode in on), I’m probably not the guy to be making arguments for the virtues of Blind Party Loyalty, but watching Hillary Clinton’s supporters cry the tears of unfathomable sadness on Election Night 2016 was probably the most beautiful thing I’ve seen since the fall of the Berlin Wall. While Donald Trump isn’t exactly a Platonic Philosopher King, to put it mildly, he did beat Hillary, didn’t he? And I’m not sure any of the other GOP candidates could have done that.

Shapiro’s still young. He’ll adjust.

    The Iraq war was always going to go sideways. Because it was a war of choice.

    I’m so old I can remember when American leaders were criticized for letting (non-Communist) dictators stay in power.

    Ba’athism followed a template the historically literate recognize as German in origin, say 1930s or thereabouts.
