Ezra Klein suggests that “It’s worth reading this crazy Chris Muir comic, if only to understand the narrative that hardcore conservatives have created for themselves.”

Two points here. One is that not only is the joke at the end here not funny, it has literally nothing to do with the political commentary that takes up the bulk of the comic. It’s just a ludicrous political rant followed by a lame pun.

But more to the point, “nationalisation of banking, insurance, auto, and healthcare?” “Unrecognisable?” This is not how we spell words in the United States of America. If Chris Muir wants to run around spelling words like thatmaybe needs to revisit the point of the original tea parties. Here in America we recognize that Barack Obama did not, in fact, nationalize the banking industry but probably should have.
