Dick Armey: outsider, rebel

Check out John Fund's comedy bit interview with Dick Armey in today's WSJ. Check out this pair of knee-slappers:
(Armey) sent each new member of Congress a seven-page memo on how not to be co-opted. Mr. Armey's top agenda item for the 112th Congress is, he says, "to defund, repeal and replace the government takeover of health care and adopt a patient-centered approach."
Do not be co-opted. Now do as I say, starting with Agenda Item #1.

And what, I asked, if Mr. Obama stonewalls? Mr. Armey did not say exactly what would be next, but he did note that the power of the Internet to connect and educate people today makes it easier to get the facts out and mobilize public support on behalf of Republican positions.
Yes, nothing sums up the core principle of mobilizing today's conservatives quite like "getting the facts out."
