“The Only Thing That Can Save This Country Is A Military Coup”

Your conservative pundit, ladies and gentlemen:

“When I see the worsening degeneracy in our politicians, our media, our educators, and our intelligentsia, I can’t help wondering if the day may yet come when the only thing that can save this country is a military coup.”

I wonder, just what salvation does he seek from a military coup? Perhaps this conservative pundit should read up on military coups some more. Take a look at the list of coup leaders. Is this the kind of person you think will save this great country of ours?

* Muammar al-Qaddafi, leader of Libya (1969–)
* Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, President of Equatorial Guinea (1979–)
* Lansana Conté, President of Guinea (1984–)
* Blaise Compaoré, President of Burkina Faso (1987–)
* Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, President of Tunisia (1987–)
* Than Shwe, Military General, Head of Junta, Myanmar (Burma) (1988–)
* Omar Hassan Ahmad al-Bashir, President of Sudan (1989–)
* Yahya Jammeh, President of The Gambia (1994–)
* Pervez Musharraf, Chief of Army Staff and President of Pakistan (1999–)
* François Bozizé, President of the Central African Republic (2003–)
* Sonthi Boonyaratglin, Chairman of the Council for Democratic Reform under Constitutional Monarchy in Thailand, Present President of the Council for National Security (2006–)
* Commodore Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama, Head of the Fijian Army, Acting Prime Minister of Fiji (2006–)
* Jose Ramos-Horta, Acting Prime Minister of East Timor (2006-)

Conservative pundits have been known to be fearful of actually expressing what they truly believe. The more and more they lose power and influence, one wonders, will they finally be emboldened to really say what they mean?

Finally, to all sane conservatives out there, why do you guys give these fools a platform through which they can spew forth their bile?
