History doesn't repeat, but it rhymes
It's kinda sweetly sad and funny to see a new generation of Democrats* inventing new terms of abuse for Republicans, spreading memes, and generally figuring out how to do strategic hate management in their own social circles.
Because the "left" blogosphere did EXACTLY that in 2003 -2006? And what did we get for it? Squat.
We got Pelosi in 2006, who immediately took impeachment off the table (not to mention hushing up the Mark "Can you measure for me?" Foley page scandal, even though Foley was a Republican. And then we got Obama's "hope and change" bait and switch, and an administration well to the right of Eisenhower that thinks Reagan had a lot of good ideas.
Enjoy it, kids. Because the Powers That Be are laughing.
* And/or fervent Republican apostates, like Bruce Bartlett.
