Like, say, Peggy Noonan’s.
I know that you’re going to hate this, but here goes: when it comes to Republicans, swing votes, or even not-crazy Democrats/liberals* who are in full disillusionment mode… smile and nod when they whisper to you how awful it’s all become, and how none of it turned out the way that they thought that it would. Be sympathetic. Console. I think that it was Ace of AoSHQ who noted that what these people need to hear is that it’s all right for them to recant. They were misled and lied to. They didn’t deserve to be tricked.
Yes, this will be hard. But the goal is to get those whispers of discontent turned into shouts, so suc…h is life.
