So Much For Democracy

A conservative rag is now discussing a what-if? non-violent military coup as a way to solve the "Obama problem:"

America isn't the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn't mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it.

Then the author goes on to describe it in great degree, including all sorts of reasons why it might be a Very Good Thing (in a deranged world, natch) for the military to take over the government of this country.

Nuttery of the nth degree, of course. But that's no reason to ignore it.
