Looks like Democrats in 2010 are pulling a page out of Harry Reid and Gray Davis’s playbook: campaign on the theme that Republicans are meanies.
Instead of running on their record, they’re running against the supposedly impotent opposition party (always accusing it of obstructionism). With such whining as their mantra, William Krisol wonders whether or not the left has collapsed:
The “f*ck tea” movement—that’s what the left has come to. They can’t defend the results of Obama’s policies or the validity of Krugman’s arguments. They know it’s hard to sustain an antidemocratic ethos in a democracy. They realize they’ve degenerated into pro-am levels of whining and squabbling. So they curse their opponents.
