  •  Holding actions are necessary in any contest. (5+ / 0-)

    Even stubborn retreats are sometimes necessary in war for hope of eventual victory. This is a war, a cultural war or war for the soul of the nation.

    The most significant factor coming out of these midterms in my opinion will be:

    1. more than ordinary midterm losses will encourage the present right wing tactics and attacks
    1. losses about the norm will probably do little to discourage those tactics and attacks, though some of the GOP "leadership" may grow cooler to them
    1. fewer losses than the norm, defeat of TP and fellow travelers will tend to show them to be ineffective and drive that faction to the margins of the political spectrum again.

    We need to work for the third option because the first is a really grim prospect for our nation and the second is not a lot better.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
