Al Franken. Ashley Judd. Clay Aiken. Because the Democrats are the party of the working class.

A key difference between Republican and Democrat politician is that there are a few Republicans who actually represent the people who elected them. Not many, and those that do are under assault by the Republican Establishment. But Democrat politicians represent The Party, and their absolute and ultimate loyalty is to the Party. Except for the leadership, every Democrat Congressman and Senator is a seat-warmer, whose job is to vote the way the leadership tells them to. Idiot celebrities make excellent party apparatchiks. There are no Ted Cruz’s or Rand Paul’s in the Democrat Party. They do as they are told.
