Stupid politicians

One thing is sure: the sclerotic Republican machine, both the national and the local versions, had better get with it or get out of the way. They hate Palin because she has such power and she’s so obviously middle class America. They loathe the Tea Parties because they can’t control them. Rather than attempting to negotiate with Palin, or finding a way to build a rapprochement with the Tea Party people, the machine politicians are looking for ways to discredit both phenomena. If not suicidal, this ‘strategy’ is surely dumb. They so badly want to join the cool kids that they can’t see the ways in which their fear is marginalizing them.
