On coups

Many are going cuckoo-bananas -- appropriately, I think -- over this quip from the conservative writer Thomas Sowell, who seemingly endorses a military coup against our current leader.

When I see the worsening degeneracy in our politicians, our media, our educators, and our intelligentsia, I can't help wondering if the day may yet come when the only thing that can save this country is a military coup.

Aside from the sheer nuttiness of this sentiment, what's interesting to me is that Sowell, a conservative of the first rank, has come to this conclusion in the midst of a Republican presidency. One wonders what fates Sowell plans to unleash against a Democratic president.
