(Oh, Barron, were you looking for another place to promote the ACP as successor to the dying GOP? I got a comments section for ya bro – promoted by ProgressiveCowgirl)
Friends, two years ago, as we watched the GOP storm Washington with electoral gains, we shuddered in fear. Tea Party bigotry seemed to have become the new political norm. I am going to self-aggrandize now, but two years ago, on this day, I boldly wrote an editorial outlining why the GOP’s bigotry would ultimately lead to their extinction, not their vindication.
I am relinking my article from two years ago, as a celebratory rerun. All of us ‘liberals’ and ‘progressives’ (even fiscal conservative ones, like me) should stand proud today that we did not give up. Well done, friends.
Any front-paging is appreciated!
