Newsmax, wrote today that a military coup might just be the best way to "resolve" America's "Obama problem." Weirdly, they've pulled the column.

So you can just read the whole thing here. It is actually a pretty standard conservative fantasy: heroic, tough military men in beautiful, well-pressed uniforms will helpfully right what the stupid American voters made wrong, for the good of the country.

But openly advocating for a coup d'etat is apparently just a bit extreme for Newsmax. Sure, they ran the column initially, but now you can't find it anywhere on their site.

Not that Perry was advocating a coup! He just thinks it is pretty much inevitable and also it would be a wonderful thing.

Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a "family intervention," with some form of limited, shared responsibility?

Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

Military intervention is what Obama's exponentially accelerating agenda for "fundamental change" toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama's radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don't shrug and say, "We can always worry about that later."

Does that sound like advocacy to you? Of course not. He is just saying it would be patriotic and necessary.

Hey, let's read some passages from a John L. Perry column from 2004, for fun!

Think, also, what license the dyslexic rent-a-crowd poster-scribblers will have with Barack Obama's moniker. Seemingly endless permutations off the letters spelling Obama are good for many a quality-time family-values game of "Anagrams."

Top of the Charts

Already you can hear rappers ranting out best-seller CDs without once repeating themselves:

"Obama, Boama, Amabo, Maboa.

"Oamba, Bamoa, Abamo, Maoba.

"Oabam, Baoma, Amoba, Moaba.

"Obaam, Bamao, Aobma, Mboaa.

"Obmaa, Bomaa, Aobam, Maaob."

Captures the very heart and soul of America, doesn't it?.

Everybody Sing Now

"We're Barack Obama bound!

"There'll be no heebie-jeebies hanging 'round.

"All aboard Barack's Express!"

This man is a national treasure.

(In other news: genuine national treasure Gore Vidal once again predicted, as he's been predicting for 20 years, that the US is headed toward military dictatorship.)
