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.

Read this article in the WaPo and tell me that Republicans have any freaking idea what they are doing.  A few of them realize that screwing tens of millions of Americans out of health care is pretty big deal.  But so many of the rest are living in an alternative facts world where ACA is a disaster, that they can't see the immense benefits the reform has brought.  ACA is bad because it's bad, so it has to be repealed.

They are being consumed by their own rhetoric.

Another good example of this is the latest diktat from Cheeto Benito.  Deregulate Wall Street?  What could happen?

Clearly, this is an opening to those vaunted WWC voters who pay close attention to the intricacies of governmental policy and use their franchise wisely to reward and punish politicians who look out for their interests.
