Belmont Club: Hold Up or Fold Up.
Richard Fernandez’ take on the Ruling Class RHINO strategy.
it’s a truism that you have to be willing to die to destroy the opponent. So far the GOP* has shown a distinct disinclination to mortal risk. There’s no a priori way to tell whether or not the McConnel strategy will work for the Republicans. If it backfires, the Republicans will have given away the store to Barack Obama. If it works, Barack Obama will be like a mastodon in the La Brea tarpits by this time next year. Toast on tar. A political system used to kicking the can down the road has done it again.
