You may have noticed that the vast majority of my snark is aimed at your Republican colleagues. That’s a valid assessment. I enjoy pointing out bad logic and hypocrisy as much as the next guy, so long as the “next guy” doesn’t host a news show on Comedy Central. The GOP is actively working to remake the country into something that I find ugly and morally reprehensible, but, bless them, at least they’re very open about it. That makes kicking them almost too easy, but not so easy that I don’t enjoy it.
You guys, you Democrats, though…you’re not off the hook. Your stated values align with mine much more closely, but you’re pretty lousy at actually acting in a way that’s consistent with your campaign speeches. Until you guys start hammering the administration over the NSA and the TPP and the so-called “authority to use drone strikes to kill Americans on U.S. soil“, well, I’m not going to put you on Santa’s “nice” list. These are not small issues. These are really big deals. Saying “well, we’re not discriminating against homosexuals quite as much as we used to” doesn’t buy the Democrats nearly enough grace to overcome the other stuff.
So, yeah: Democrats, you suck too. You’re just not as much fun to mock.
