The Democrats, that is. P. J. O’Rourke is the funniest person, and one of the nicest guys, in the world of punditry. He diagnoses the Democrats’ loathing for their fellow citizens:
They don’t just hate our Republican, conservative, libertarian, strict constructionist, family values guts. They hate everybody’s guts. And they hate everybody who has any. Democrats hate men, women, blacks, whites, Hispanics, gays, straights, the rich, the poor, and the middle class.
Democrats hate Democrats most of all. Witness the policies that Democrats have inflicted on their core constituencies, resulting in vile schools, lawless slums, economic stagnation, and social immobility. Democrats will do anything to make sure that Democratic voters stay helpless and hopeless enough to vote for Democrats.
This line sums up why it is, as an email correspondent says, November or never:
This is not an election on November 2. This is a restraining order.
