Wes Wessamore, author of “Bush 2.0: 100 Ways Barack Obama Is Just Like George W. Bush,” has a new very perceptive analysis, “100 Ways Mitt Romney Is Just Like Barack Obama.” Just the thing to send to those uber-partisan friends, family members, and colleagues (at church or work) wedded to the sordid candidacies of either one of these two duplicitous peas in a pod to demonstrate that the Big Fix is on once again.

The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy.
