The new year is quickly reminding us that the more things change the more they stay the same. The Manichean temptation is alive and well in 2023. Whether one pretends that their justification for forced medical procedures was done out of love, and everyone else was motivated by evil, they embrace a platform infested with child pornography to escape "rich man bad," or they become the very thing they swore to oppose because they aren't getting their way, seeing the world as black and white leads to predictably poor behavior and conclusions. Perhaps nowhere was this more apparent this week than in the way RINO/Neocons like Patches McCain (Dan Crenshaw) treated and spoke about their Republican colleagues for holding out on the House Speaker vote for Kevin McCarthy. Patches is a repeat Manichean offender, getting worse by the day.
