  •  Politics gap. (0+ / 0-)

    It's all part of the intensity gap. And the intensity gap didn't happen because the Democrats were too activistic and liberal.

    Content gap.  Intensity isn't the half of it.

    Not really so much a gap really, as much as honest recognition that Big-Boy Pants(tm) Dems have been working in full-throttle reverse gear, normalizing Reagan Revolution values to the bitter end, and continuing (hated, if anyone's paying attention) Bushco initiatives hand over fist.

    Then they have the audacity to call it politics.

    The audacity of stoogery.

    Don't blame the voters for staying home.  Lack of intensity in this instance equals progressive momentum.  Principle.  Acumen.  Having a clue.

    Dems are willing stooges for the status quo.  By this I mean willing to cut their own political/electoral throats in service to the status quo.  It's a good living.

    But what does this mean for the rest of us, to spend so much time and effort stooging for the stooges?  

    Not a double negative, turning positive, sadly.  Just stoogery upon stoogery, signifying nothing.

    Then we call it politics.  Who are we kidding?

    Please don't feed the security state.
