Appealing to Shakespeare won't save this bit of Will nonsense. Here is a quote from the column that I think is really important and key to modern
Republican philosophy, "The real choice today is between bigger or smaller unintelligent government."

This assumption is so embedded into the 24/7 drumbeat from FuxNews and Rush and the right wing echo chamber that Republican lap dogs of the ultra wealthy elite think it is fact that can't be questioned. What the teabaggers have been saying since their emergence seems to be, "Government can't do anything right and if you elect us to government we will prove it." Will is a little more sophisticated than that. His messages seems to be, "Government can't do anything right and we Republicans stand opposed to letting anyone try."

It seems kind of strange that the teabaggers wrap themselves in the flag and feign nothing but honor and reverence for the country and the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. Yet, they believe that the country and government formed by those honored founders is incapable of doing anything right today. They feel obligated to neuter the government they claim to respect so it can't do any more harm to them.

This all sounds a lot like the joke about the three legged pig. When questioned about it, the farmer replied, "That's a very special pig, and a pig that special you don't want to eat all at once."
