Today in my SF class the students discussed Schmitt’s Concept of the Political in the context of Watchmen and the Battlestar Galactica episode “33.” So when links to this Glen Beck video started filling up my twitter feed, I thought I might post it as an example of Schmittian conceptions of politics. But then I realized it was something far more profound: the necessity of theorizing the “frenemy.”

Discuss. Or not.
