The Three Stages Of A Crazy Liberal Idea

Liberals, when they feel like they’re winning, become emboldened to start trying to force their loony ideas on the public. If Obambi wins, America will be treated to four years of this sort of obtrusive wack-a-doo craziness,

First it was a proposed ban on plastic bags.

Now, a member of the influential Madison Plan Commission wants to ban the restaurant drive-through — or at least restrict the ubiquitous symbol of America’s auto-centric lifestyle.

“Given the concern about all the carbon going into the atmosphere, I’m not sure we should be building more places for people to sit idling in their cars,” says Eric Sundquist, who was appointed to the citizen panel by Mayor Dave Cieslewicz this spring.

A former newspaper reporter in Atlanta now working as a researcher at the UW-Madison’s Center on Wisconsin Strategy, Sundquist notes that several cities in Canada have recently moved to ban the drive-through coffee shop or stand-alone fast food restaurant (

“Bans haven’t gotten as far in the U.S., although I know San Luis Obispo, Calif., has one,” he says.

Let me tell you how it works with liberals and crazy ideas.

1) When liberals don’t think they’re winning politically, not only will they not discuss the things they believe, they will typically deny that they believe them.

2) Then, when they start to get a little more confident and think they might be able to get a crazy idea through, usually one of them will put it out there and it’ll get some support from liberal activists, while most of the other liberals will still deny that they want to do it.

3) Finally, when liberals become fairly sure they can get a crazy idea through, all the liberals who previously denied that they supported the idea will unapologetically vote for it en masse.

If Obama gets in and Congress, as expected, adds more Democrats in the House and Senate, get ready to see a lot of #3 going on.
