GLENN: I contend the vast majority of people in America are tired of this. They want to be -- I talked to somebody yesterday. Had lunch with somebody who is a big Hillary Clinton funder and -- beforehand. Hated it. Hated it. In 2008 -- and this time it was like, I have to. Had lunch with him yesterday.
He said, "I got to tell you, I just want to be left alone. I just want to be left alone. Just don't take my stuff. Don't tell me how to live. Don't tell me how to run my business. Don't tax me to death."

This is a quote. This is a very intelligent man. This is a quote. "You know, you guys -- you know, the -- the ID for voting."
GLENN: And I said, "You don't think people should have ID to vote?"
"Yes, I do. But it should be just like a driver's license."
"Well, what do you guys want?"
"A driver's license."
"Well, wait. Then what's the argument about?"
"You guys want nothing."
"Well, that's ridiculous."
"Welcome to the Tea Party!"
GLENN: There's a chance because people are tired, and they see that it's not working. And they're tired of defending their own side. We have to stick to principles because the vast majority does not agree with Milo. They might make him feel good. And the vast majority does not agree with Occupy Wall Street, although in their secret meeting places, it might make them feel good. But that's not who they want leading the country.
That's not how they want to end up. Those are devices to punch back. And then we'll go back. We'll teach them a lesson, and then we'll go back.
No, it doesn't work that way. We have to stay pegged to reason and principles.
