It starts with the dimwittedly contrarian premise that the Republican party is the true heir of FDR — Look Ma, I can be provocative! — and then descends into the spittle-flicked rant of a man who woke up constipated one morning and just started pouring his rage into his word processor. And then emailed it off." (Political Animal)
