What is up with the Republican Party? They’re not even pretending to care about good governance any more; they’re in thrall to the fools, ideologues and whackjobs.
What’s up with the Democratic Party? They persist in trying to negotiate and compromise with the crazies and in so doing betray their principles and their supporters.
And what’s up with the US media? It insists on portraying the parties as equivalent, sticking to a “he said/she said” formula even when one of the parties is flat out lying or just plain old loony.
It’s hard to watch.
