random political musing…

so, pundits on both sides of the aisle are predicting the “self-destruction” of the Democratic and Republican parties based on the madness of this year’s primary season.

while i honestly cannot see this happening (with either party), would it really be such a bad thing?

imagine a Republican party divorced from and no longer run by a militant conservative right wing, and a Democratic party no longer containing a fruitcake left wing. man, would that be nice.

oh well, back to reality.

quote of the day:

“Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule–and both commonly succeed, and are right… The United States has never developed an aristocracy really disinterested or an intelligentsia really intelligent. Its history is simply a record of vacillations between two gangs of frauds.” – H.L. Mencken
