Shameless suckup

If you cross Glenn Reynolds with PJ O'Rourke, I don't want to watch. I don't know what the offspring would look like, but it would probably sound a lot like VodkaPundit Stephen Green.

A couple of days back the Veep wrote something about "guns and money" that invoked Fascism. He invoked the popular poli-sci definition and there's nothing wrong with that.

But few words have been quite as abused as "fascism". I contend that the standard definition is inappropriate at best if not downright malign. More later.
