    My point is that we need to stop the circular firing squad and stop assuming that "the electorate" is all like we are.

    First, most people are pretty ignorant about what's going on, and easily duped by misinformation.

    Second, most people don't pay nearly as close attention as we do to policy issues.

    Third, most people don't have nearly the partisan leanings (or hatred of GOP) that Kossacks do.

    When was the last time you talked to someone who thinks different from you, and challenged your worldview?

      The shortest distance between two points is never a straight line.
