Mitt the Flip’s Bad Carma 3


It occurs to me that Mitt the Flip has made so much of his money flipping companies into bankruptcy that he thinks it’s a good thing.

    Good pun. Unfortunately, the Democratic predilection for picking loser hacks like Ted Strickland, beaten by extremist John Kasich, is on display. Guys like this need to be send into obscure retirement and given a stipend to shut up and not appear on television or video where they only remind people that they lost to the extremists because they believed in virtually nothing and the things they did believe in they couldn’t sell anyone on.

    The thing is, the Dems are pols–middling persons of middling convictions who are more interested in getting things done than they are in the fine points of esoteric ideology and conspiracy theories.

    The Repubs are fanatics.  

    Like some women are said to be attracted to bad boys, some voters . . . .

    Yeah, in the polarized failing country, fanaticism trumps people of middling convictions. They’re not the people for the time, they lack the right stuff. When people are desperate they want to see vigor and true belief and that can be exploited. Fanatics have vigor and they know how to work from a minority position.
