“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

MSNBC deeply offended about President Obama being called racist by Glenn Beck
MSNBC has been deeply offended all day about Glenn Beck's comment calling Obama a racist on FOX. Obama is not a racist but then neither was George Bush. However, MSNBC has selective indignation and of course Chris Matthews, the tingling tower of flatulence, spittle at the ready, poured it on. Shall we roll back the tape? Except this time it was MSNBC that was hosting a commenter on George Bush.
