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?
