“To begin with, we cannot be timid, whatever we do. We cannot operate under some sort of Marquis of Queensberry Rules of political action and accord our opponents any pause in the fight to lick their wounds. We can give no quarter if we mean to win back that which the Founders so dearly bequeathed. I much prefer the example of Butch Cassidy who, when challenged to a knife fight by the hulking figure of Harvey Logan, simple booted Harvey deep in his groin and followed up with a wicked blow to Harvey’s jaw and ended the fight. There is a lesson in this scene for all Democrats who believe it is still possible to beat Trump on a level playing field.”

This reminds me of the Army officer in Vietnam who said, “We had to destroy the village to save it.”
