Soundtrack to this post:
I can't recall a time when I've seen an editorial this strident in a mainstream publication. Echoing a line from Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth", the Mississippi Business Journal's Ray Mosby takes Gov. Phil Bryant (R) to task for a professed messianic complex in "Paranoia Strikes Deep with Phil Bryant in Neshoba Speech."
Normally, I extract a few core sentences from an article and then encourage you to go read the rest. I'm not going to do that here. Just click the link to Mosby's piece and read the whole thing yourself. It's brilliant.
