My Tuesday Column is up over at the home page. Call it my last bilious burp for election ’10. It occured to me that, unlike the last defeat the Democrats suffered, in 2004, this time they have not had to process their disappointment through internet apology sites and group therapy sessions, and I wondered why:
Obviously, making international apologies is more glamorous than making domestic amends, but if GOP victories are the unmitigated catastrophes the Democrats and the press would have us believe, it seems like the progressive base should be able to muster the energy to grab a sharpie and do a little penance. They could write:
“Sorry, gay friends, about DADT . . . .”
“Sorry, thought California was cooler about cannabis . . . .”
“Very sad that healthcare will probably be messed with now, sorry . . . .”
“Don’t blame me; I voted for tax increases so we can spend more . . . .”
There are no signs. No sad clown faces or turned-down thumbs being offered by the Dem Drama Department, Class of ’10. But why?
You’ll have to read it to see if you agree with my conclusion. Don’t take it all that seriously, though. It’s only semi-serious, to start with.
And, clearly, it was written before I’d read this.
O/T but interesting
