Demagoguery. Demonization. Democrats.

I watched James Carville and Mary Matalin on "Meet the Press." Exasperating. Mary used to be a thoughtful Republican, but lately she is a parrot for the party line. Democrats are demonizers and demagogues. Feh.

A Modest Proposal:

Democrats. Please. Stop trying to accomodate the Republicans. They have gone so far overboard recently that eventually the voters will have had their fill and turn them out of office, but only if you explain clearly to them that you are allowing the Republican agenda to take its course because the voters seem to prefer it that way, and that you do not want to be used as cover when it becomes clear that their policies are inimical to the vast majority of voters, and they begin searching for scapegoats.

Republican policies favor corporate interests and harm the average wage earner. Sooner or later voters will  reach the conclusion that their best interests are not being served. If Democrats refuse to play along with Republican games, there will be nowhere for the Republicans to hide when voters discover that they have been royally had.

Just a thought.
