…the Democrats will counter that the Republicans also suck. And while this is true, it’s not really going to help them. As I pointed out before, both a dog incessantly barking and a zombie apocalypse are things that everyone would agree suck. Yet no one during a zombie apocalypse, while hiding out in a boarded up mall, would turn to the other survivors and say, “We don’t want to kill all the zombies; then we’d have to go back to being woken up at night by that annoying dog next door.” But this is the best argument the Democrats can come up with. “Remember how awful the Republicans and Bush were? You hated them. You don’t want to go back to that.” Yes, why would people want to go back to when 6% unemployment was considered high?
PS: The fact that Frank J does not have a column in a major newspaper somewhere is the most searing indictment of the mainstream media that I can think of. This entire piece encapsulates the 2010 political scene brilliantly, succinctly, and – above all else – entertainingly. That last bit is important: the New Media types that do get imported into Old Media venues these days are often… not.
