When They Go Low…

Among many on the left, a theme has once again reared its ugly head over the last few days, and it’s a potentially destructive one. You see, they think Al Franken has been victimized by the general “wimpiness” of the Democratic Party.  They claim Democrats don’t “fight,” which means Democrats don’t hit back

Not as Polarized as Advertised

Let me start out with what may be a startling statement that many of you won’t believe, even though it is true… This country is not really all that divided. At least, it’s no more divided now than it ever has been. I can almost hear the gasps as you

To Be Effective at Politics, You Need to Know what Politics Is

One of the biggest problems we liberals have is that, by and large, voters don’t like us very much. That should make every one of us sad, because we really are the good guys. Even those on the far left who I rake over the coals quite often are generally

If You’re Not Working for a Democratic Majority, You’re Not Working for Change

Incrementalism: It’s How Politics Works

I am watching a Twitter fight evolve between pragmatic liberals like me and dreamy-eyed unicorn progressives over… wait for it… “incrementalism.” The center of the fight is based on Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare-for-All” bill, which will never pass this Congress in any form. And the objection is over “incrementalism,” based on

A Political Primer for White Liberal Millennials

There is a touching connection going on between white millennial far lefties (whom I am told are the future! Yay!) and old white Hippie-type “progressives,” who are still convinced that they are political geniuses, despite the fact that their last “win” in the political arena was making the Vietnam War

Principle vs Ego

To all of you people who are STILL always on about “Blue Dogs,” I just have one thing to say: Get a life. You already got rid of most Blue Dogs, to the point that Republicans control everything. And might I say, the results of your campaign haven’t been very
