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.

POTUS Is A Bad Ass

The history of the Obama years is only beginning to be written.  As Chait notes in his opening, one long term effect of it will be the introduction of parliamentary style party unity by the GOP (and later to a much lesser degree by Democrats).  This has rendered American politics fundamentally dysfunctional on many levels.

Which makes the list of Obama's accomplishments all the more impressive.

Now if Scalia would just go ahead and die already....
