My favorite AEI Scholar

Stormin Norman was once DC's most ubiquitous talking head. He seems to have entered the twilight of career.

He's my favorite too, Patrick!

It must be so ANNOYING that someone from the AEI has enough integrity and intelligence to point out every ridiculous and idiotic thing conservatives do, say, or suggest.

Also, I couldn't help but note the complete absence of any attempt to refute any of his specific charges. Just some dig that he used to appear everywhere (using the word ubiquitous, a word which George Will and other conservatives have reinforced as having a negative connotation by applying it to Obama constantly). But Norm has now apparently declined in quality?

I suspect the problem for conservatives about his career is that he is still too ubiquitous for their taste- always letting his big mouth run. Silly Norm, doesn't he know that groups like AEI have a responsibility to the conservative movement to maintain party and messaging discipline?

Two cheers for Ornstein- a moderate who points out idiocy and hypocrisy everywhere. Is it really his fault that it's mostly concentrated among conservatives?

Norman Ornstein is a great American.

1. Should Mr. McGahn enforce parts of a law that SCOTUS declared unconstitutional?

2. Donald Trump is an idiot-- is that news?

3. Was it a slow news day at The Hill. Does BBA have an chance of becoming law?

PS. I was way ahead of Mr. Ornstein. I'm the one who suggested that Mr. Trump be sentenced to life on a desert island with Joy Behar.
