THE WHIRRING NOISE AT FDR’S TOMB HAS GONE SILENT
We won a real relief bill appropriate to the magnitude of the crisis, that empowers government to act.
We did not negotiate with terrorists or seek the sacred middle, kowtow, or water down.
And we are going to use this accomplishment to bend the political conversation and elect more Democrats.
More than anything else, it is this last move, versus the destructive habit of decades, of smugly and cluelessly letting the opposition define us, that makes me ask this:
Who are you, and what have you done with the Democratic party?
Not that I am complaining!
Of course, if we aren’t willing to move ahead with voting rights, which will mean tackling or at least finessing the Filibuster, it will jut be a flash in the pan.
But finally, the battle is joined.
Welcome back! It has been far, far too long.
Can we get any of that in Massachusetts?
