It’s the right-wing intellectual equivalent of Belushi’s speech at the end of Animal House. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no.
The clip only runs 2:35 but this piece at Human Events fleshes it out a bit. Note well:
A number of powerful figures in the Bush Administration and in the Senate have been saying that if we do not agree to pass this destructive bill, they will never enforce the law. Tell your senator that this is an extraordinary effort to blackmail the American people by having officials state that they will fail to perform their sworn duty, and we won’t stand for it.
His application of Reagan’s “trust but verify” adage at the end is on the money, too.
