Can't say I agree with you about Senator Warren. I think she's trying to do good in the Senate, not making trouble. I don't want her to run for President because she's better positioned where she is.

Things flipped all at once

What's instructive is to look at how things flipped.

Angry and engaged minorities roll apathetic, loosely-affiliated majorities all the time in politics. It's probably the rule and not the exception.

Look at Congress....

We mock our enemies at our peril.

A baker's dozen of years ago I spent a good deal of time with my friends in the left blogosphere, making silly jokes and cutting remarks at the expense of GWB. It seemed at the time like good clean fun and a harmless community building exercise, but upon reflection I suspect that we might have been able to beat him in 2004 if we had been more diligent about laying down the prerequisites for electoral victory. We did, after all, flatter ourselves that with the internet we were going to change the world.

Humor can be liberating, but when all you do is mock you run the risk of mistaking your jokes for reality.

Great article. Warren does need to stay in the Senate. Cruz will pull the GOP further to the right. However despite the worship from the right - the truth is that Reagan was a joke and a clown and very worthy of his title of "Worst American Ever.
