Doubling Down on Dumb

What a difference a year makes:

Let’s state up front that both parties can act stupidly, and both can engage in almost comically self-destructive behavior at times. History is littered with examples. But never in my lifetime have I seen members of a party engage in such willful self-deception as liberal Democrats are doing today.

This is both stupid and awesome. Stupid, because the Democrats (and Obama especially) keep doubling down on the same horrible ideas that are causing them to become toxic to the electorate of a center-right nation, and awesome, for the same reason. It sucks that we have to go through the occasional bout of extreme stupidity, but it looks like there’s hope for the republic yet…
