When it’s not even surprsing that the NRA filed an amicus brief yesterday in support of the ACLU’s suit against NSA surveillance, something funny must be in the air or water. It may be soon to declare Rand Paul the 2016 winner, but Hillary or another Democrat may find that the ideological ground has shifted quite a lot. Would it be deeply cynical to see this as a case of Moloch-worshippers lying down with useful idiots? Yes, I think it would. I think it’s more like vice paying tribute to virtue, but it is a little disconcerting.
