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.

Remember The Tea Party Is On The Ropes

Right, Eric?

This is the best take I've read:

Cantor was - at heart - a power wielding, deal maker wanna be.  He wanted to be powerful and you become powerful in DC by cutting deals.

But he couldn't cut any deals because he was worried about the Tea Party.

That worked so well for him....

Right now - and I don't want to read too much into it - but I think Ted Cruz will win the nomination in 2016.
