  •  There has to be contrast. (0+ / 0-)

    It would be hard for a democratic administration to get away with tax-cuts for the rich, cutting money going into SS, continuing the Bush policies of government secrecy etc., if it weren’t for the increased level of (manufactured) contrast between democrats and republicans supplied by this new breed of psycho republicans (i.e. teabaggers). I don’t think the level of contrast that existed even in Thurmond’s day would be sufficient to insulate the current democratic administration from untenable in-party dissent. I actually think the republicans may have to get crazier to pull this off (i.e. hard-right feudalist lurch).
