Snappy answer

Email Print

I just received another email treatise objecting to my attack on GOP conservatives, and explaining to me, as if I didn’t know, that the Democrats are really really bad. As you read these letters, a thousand responses occur to you. But rather than go point by point–what’s the point?–I chose the following snappy answer that may not persuade but contains about as much truth as is really necessary to understand our current political dilemma: “The Democrats are bad guys. So were the communists in Italy and Germany in the 1930s. But they weren’t the ones in power.”
