Now that the runaway train of one-party profligacy has flown off the tracks in Massachusetts, is there any chance We the People might seize this opportunity to re-examine our party loyalties, challenging the destructive duopoly that's been serving our nation so poorly? How can the decisive repudiations of both the party of George Bush and the party of Ted Kennedy in quick succession possibly be spun to the merit of either?I was mentioning the same thing to a friend via emails the other day, to wit: The ’08 election and Tuesday’s election were both about centrists smacking around the two parties. Neither party seems to get it. They win an election and automatically assume it's an endorsement of the policies of their respective bases.
Isn’t it obvious that a disgusted electorate has had enough of both?
