I quite like Sykes and the Bulwark, even if I often disagree with them. The Bulwark team is, refreshingly, engaged in a project of true, meaningful conservatism.

But his take on the Michigan situation struck me as odd. If only the rules were entirely rational and perfectly appropriate, he says, people wouldn't lose patience and storm the capitol. Absent clear guidelines, people will patience.

Yes. But also, no. The "protestors" would have found *something* to complain about, *something* to justify their paranoid (and Devos-funded!) spasms of rage. Whitmer should make the rules clearer for everyone in the state. But no one should think the folks flying Confederate flags with AR-14s are sincere.
