Quote of the Day: Tyranny of Cliches Edition

From Jonah Goldberg’s “Tyranny of Cliches,” talking about the phoniness of many who abhor political labels:

The same goes for the fake nonideologues of the No Labels crowd. Michael Bloomberg is a nannying, statist bully who, much like Napoleon, hurls around charges of ideological ensorcellment as a way to delegitimize political opponents he cannot defeat in open debate.

Yeah, I’d say that about accurately describes the situation.

    Probably why he runs as an Independent. The Republicans don’t want him and the Democrat elite are afraid he’ll take over.

    This also reminds me of the periodic effort, not to avoid labels, but to invent new ones for the Same Old Same Old. I’m thinking of perhaps 20 years ago, when it was attempted to reinvent socialism as “Communitarianism.”

    “Ensorcellment.” I learn more new stuff from this website…!
