I think I finally figured out why the Ds will continue to suck forever
Remember that little twerp Ilya Sheyman? The Obama lifer and MoveOn weasel who pissed away a lot of "progressive" money and got slaughtered by a D regular in IL-10? Here's why Our Ilya thinks -- or at least says -- he lost:
1) Late Money and Who Is the Progressive ....
2) Astonishingly [why, one can only wonder?] Low Voter Turnout....
3) Last Minute Smear Campaigns Work...
Notice a common thread here?
It's not Ilya's fault.
And that's the fallback position of all Democratic partisans: IT'S ALWAYS SOMEBODY ELSE'S FAULT. Nader. Mean Republicans. The ignorance and stupidity of others. The racism of others. The hatred of others.
No capacity whatever, it seems, for self-examination. That's why Ds suck, and will continue to suck, in exactly the same way, forever, because a display of adaptability begins with self-examination and the acceptance of failure. This is the cultural and sociological manifestation of the iron law of institutions.
UPDATE Democrats can never fail. They can only be failed.
