Proving, Yet Again, That the Far Left and Far Right Have More In Common Than Folks Want to Admit

Gore Vidal: ‘We’ll have a dictatorship soon in the US’

Yesterday, I noted yesterday that the nuts need to stop with suggestions about assassinations, impeachments and coups. That opinion was aimed at idiots on the right. Today, we have idiots on the Left fantasizing about the same thing, proving, yet again, that the Far Left and Far Right are much closer in their thinking than either party (and their bloggers) like to admit.

I'm always a little fascinated with those who dream about violent takeovers of the government from either their own political side or the other side. I guess it satisfies these people's inner Bolshevik or something. But Americans have never really shown much interest in that sort of thing, and I don't think there are enough nutters out there to pull off a coup. Why bother? We have elections in about 16 months and you can throw out a whole bunch of the idiots you dislike then. It's not a monarchy, after all.

Dr. Melissa Clouthier recommends that everyone just chill. Ed Morrissey shows that both sides have their nuts.
