I'm a Bad Sport
I got on a role on the idea of politics as a game in a comment at Eschaton. We Dems. need to stop trying to be good sports, no matter what the SCLM says -- after all, since when do they want us to be elected? so why do we take advice from them? To view politics as a game is to concede to the Republicans a key part of their "anti-government" ideology: that politics is only about power plays.
The Rude Pundit agrees with you today. I get to feel some pride in my state today, though. It appears Feingold at least is taking the role of opposition party seriously in these hearings.Post a Comment
