You can measure how much conservatives are winning by how liberals start tweeting bathsalts craziness. And as we often theorize, scratch the surface of a liberal, and you find a totalitarian.

Andy Lassner is the executive producer for the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” but in his off-time, he likes to dream about how America would be better off if we had a dictator instead of having to deal with a messy system of checks and balances and y’know, democratic stuff.

Andy thought better of his tweet and deleted it, but guess what? Say it with us, dear reader … Twitchy is forever!

This earlier tweet might explain his longing for a totalitarian to rule over us:


It’s really quite simple. When liberals get what they want, they think democracy is awesome. But when conservatives get in their way, they prefer totalitarianism.
