3d Loser Award: Lawrence O’Donnell

by Smitty (h/t Hot Air)

This blog hasn’t given out a 3-D Loser Award in a while.Then again, Lawrence O’Donnells don’t just grow on trees–the whole forest would die.

Possibly, the Argument Clinic is the only boondoggle that didn’t make the Longevity Abatement Legislation. Yet.

Draft Schiff movement grows

Look at this “Draft Schiff” site, trying to recruit financial expert Peter Schiff as a Republican challenger to Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Corrupt) in 2010. Via Eric Dondero at Libertarian Republican, who’s been following the Connecticut drumbeats.

This phenomenon, I would suggest, is why some hawks in the GOP were wrong to diss the Ron Paul movement as harshly as they did. Paul was always solid on economic issues — much better than John McCain from a free-market perspective (or any other perspective, for that matter).

The Paulistas are jazzed on Schiff, and if you can knock out a Democratic kingpin like Dodd with a free-market guy like Schiff, anything else is gravy, baby. Crazy? It’s exactly crazy enough to work. Shiff was one of the first to predict the collapse of the bubble, and now he’s predicting the “stimulus” will lead to economic disaster.

Can you say, “libertarian populism“? Tea Party U.S.A.? With Congress pissing away borrowed money like there’s no tomorrow, now is the time to fire up that hard-core Spirit of ’94 message. If you want to argue foreign policy, fine — let’s do that after we return Chris Dodd to the private sector.
