An Anonymous Democrat Shares her Secret

Judith Weiss at The Command Post posts an essay that is breathtaking in its thoughtful eloquence. Written by an anonymous woman in New York, a woman who dares to think for herself rather than submerging herself in groupthink, this lifelong Democrat gifts us with insight into her reasoning. This is a powerful and very readable essay. She begins:

Read the whole thing, and bless this lady.

Second doff of the hat tonight to Roger Simon.
