  •  Excellent diary, deserves front page (5+ / 0-)

    An underlying theme, which I also see, is the nature of Republicans to be authoritarian followers (other than the sociopaths they elect, who fit the very different psychology of authoritarian leaders).  

    The point about lack of common language is telling, though.  Here, I think of Lincoln's talent for finding words that caught the common humanity of the Union and its enemies who were its brothers.    But, if Republicans claim they like structures, but at the same time don't like being judged as being out of synch by the American cultural structure, well....maybe they just need to grow the fuck up and realize they don't get everything they want.
