Ray of sunshine on Walker
Remember the parallel theories that: (1) it would have been better if Clinton had won, because then the career "progressives" who hated her would have held her feet to the fire, which they didn't do and never will do with Obama, and (2) it's better when the Ds are in the minority, because then they oppose looting Social Security with ferocity, instead of supporting it, as they're doing now?
In a way, we're getting a chance to test that theory out in the "state laboratory" of WI:
The Ds, now in control of the Senate, could oppose Walker with ferocity -- as for example by deep-sixing his proposals for mining -- or they could play Walker Lite and "compromise."
Either way, we get a useful result. For those who still believe that the D party apparatus is anything more than the other pustulent boil on Jamie Dimon's Ayn Rand-tatted ass, I'm betting they'll compromise.
But testable outcomes are always nice!
NOTE Man, I sure know how to bring that sunshine, don't I!
