Thursday, November 07, 2002 Remember Jeezum Jim Jeffords?James Taranto at Opinion Journal does, and ponders the cost to the Yankee sell-out "voice of conscience" for 15 minutes of fame – now ended. Also answered: What politician has now lost an election in every single state of the Union?
At NRO, Dinesh D'Souza offers a Jonathan Swiftian prescription for renewed Democratic health:
Many on the political Left are blaming the leadership of the Democratic party for moving to the center, accommodating President Bush's agenda, and thus producing the catastrophic losses of Tuesday's election. "Let us stop playing Republican wannabe," these leftists say, "and start standing up for something."
These critics are right. The Democrats could improve their political fortunes by unequivocally embracing the three central principles of the political Left: anti-Americanism, economic piracy, and moral degeneracy.
Indeed the Democrats could become the Party of the Seven Deadly Sins. The political advantage of this approach is that the Seven Deadly Sins are immensely popular. Imagine the political opportunities if all vices were associated with the Democratic party!
