The Sorrows of Ol' Chuckles

There's something so unspeakably...strange about the fact that the biggest post-Obama apostate of the right is turning out to be Charles Johnson. Ol' Chuckles is currently finding himself persona not so grata amongst his fellow conservative talking heads ever since evincing some disturbingly sane opinions about Barack Obama, right-wing European nationalism, evolution, and other hot-button issues. He's learning -- quickly for him, but creepingly slowly for the rest of us -- that his comrades value dogma over reason, and that any deviance will get him compared to Hitler faster than you can say 'Ward Churchill'.

Sure, it's fun to watch Chuckles as it gradually dawns on him exactly how mangy the dogs he's been lying down with for eight years really are. And he's a smart, dedicated guy, and the realization that some sense has managed to leak through to him, even after spending most of a decade screaming 'jihad' every time an Arab cleared his throat in public, gives one hope for the future, however slight. But it's damn hard to get used to. Who'd have thought that the guy who inspired people like Crazy Pammy, The Jihad Jackoff and The Darkies Are Coming! to start blogging would now be their Public Enemy No. 1?

I remember seeing him mentioned in an article about how some rightwingers are pausing and saying "Hey, maybe this guy's a little too much" re: Glenn Beck. I was very surprised to see him mentioned in such a context.

...I looked, and didn’t find, Christian extremists who were trying to replace the Constitution with Biblical law. They’re a myth. They’re the Santa Claus of the left.”

I guess the Constitution Party doesn't count because, um...they have the word "constitution" in their name! Or something!

Anyway, good for Charles. It makes you wonder if we'll see more "post-post-9/11" conservatives backing away from the more extreme positions that have been left over from the Bush party.
