I wonder what brand of champagne they’re drinking tonight at John Birch Society headquarters?
They really are the comeback story of the last two years. Not long ago, associations with the Birchers would have been the political kiss of death. Now they’re everywhere in the GOP.

As I write this, the race in West Virginia is being called for Democrat Joe Manchin — excellent news, because his opponent, John Raese, is the very model of the modern anti-science Republican.
