I don’t believe for a moment that (via Josh) Michael Barone actually thinks that a campaign of protesting someone who’d lie about Obama and Ayers’ non-relationship signals a "thugocracy." No one who has witnessed — in silence or outright approval –war-related manipulation, torture, suspension of habeas corpus, the politicization of the Justice Department, etc., has any right to suddenly find "thuggishness" objectionable; nor to redefine it in such a way that includes truth-squadding calls to a radio station.

This is just a bleat of white resentment. Who speaks for the white man in America? Whensit gunna be YOUR turn, dammit? And you know how those people are a bunch of thugs, right? They couldn’t write their own books or anything. Will Pacman Jones become Secretary of the Treasury?
