The Civility of "Shut Up!"

VDH pretty much nails it.

...the new age of civility is a political response to an acknowledged tragic event that was apolitical. It is intended to tone down growing political and media opposition to the status quo in Washington.

The Ruling Class has read the polls and knows that it cannot continue its Leviathan-push; they hope only to maintain it (with a few pushes here and there.)

So if the Right falls for the "shut up and get along" honeytrap, the Left figures they'll be able to persevere in 2012, if not gain back a few seats.

In the immortal formulation of Don Surber: Bite Me.
