Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

A Failure Of Democracy

Great piece by Eric Boehlert and Booman, but I think it eventually comes back to a failure of democracy.  The GOP is not held accountable for its actions, because of money, because of gerrymandering and because of a DC press that can't see the forest for the trees.

But ultimately, it is the institutions of democracy that have been corroded and left wanting.
