Repealing the twentieth century

Y'all say I'm exaggerating when I say that the goal of the current rightwing movement is to repeal the twentieth century, and then all of a sudden members of the American Enterprise Institute go and get themselves quoted in the New York Times saying that, ''I think what is really needed here is a fundamental intellectual assault on the entire New Deal edifice... We want to withdraw judicial support for the entire modern welfare state. I'd retire and play golf if I could get there."

The line about playing golf is obviously well worn. I'll bet that really gets yucks at the club....
