Ace in the hole: Rightbloggers say Chile mine rescue means Obama sucks, capitalism rules

Last week we talked about the Tennessee fire department that let a man’s

house burn to the ground because he hadn’t paid protection money, and

the rightbloggers who thought this was a laudable example of free market justice.

This week they celebrated another free market triumph — though at least

this time it had to do with people being rescued rather than abandoned

to their fates.

It began with Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal

announcing to the world that the miners who were dramatically rescued

last week after 69 days underground owed their escape from certain death

to capitalism.
