Booman doesn't seem to appreciate the extraordinary irony of progressives looking to the "intelligence community" to end this charade...
This is all a recipe for a breakdown in order and for our systems for political accountability and the peaceful transfer of power. We're already far enough along this road that a lot of people are beginning to conclude that the system is broken not only beyond repair but beyond having any moral claim to deserve repair. Maybe it's better to work to accelerate its demise than to try to shore up an edifice that is beyond hope. Perhaps the most corrosive aspect of this is when it is applied not to the media or our elites but to the people themselves. Once you lose faith in the quality of our people, pretty much everything else collapses. We can perhaps devise new systems, but any system that isn't premised on the will of the people won't be a system worth having.
